     finance charge or shall yield interest at its APR, (E) shall provide for,
     in the event that such Receivable is prepaid, a prepayment that fully pays

     related Financed Vehicle shall have complied at the time it was originated
     or made, and shall comply at the time of execution of this Agreement in all

                                       6



          (iv) Binding Obligation. Each Receivable shall constitute the genuine,
     legal, valid and binding payment obligation in writing of the related
     Obligor, enforceable by the holder thereof in accordance with its terms,
     except as enforceability may be subject to or limited by bankruptcy,
     insolvency, reorganization, moratorium, liquidation or other similar laws
     affecting the enforcement of creditors' rights in general and by general
     principles of equity, regardless of whether such enforceability shall be
     considered in a proceeding in equity or at law.

          (v) No Bankrupt Obligors. According to the records of the Seller, as
     of the Cutoff Date, no Obligor is the subject of a bankruptcy proceeding.

          (vi) Security Interest in Financed Vehicles. According to the records
     of the Seller, as of the Cutoff Date, no Financed Vehicle has been
     repossessed and not reinstated and immediately prior to the sale,
     assignment and transfer thereof, all necessary steps shall be taken so that
     each Receivable shall be secured by a validly perfected first priority
     security interest in the related Financed Vehicle in favor of the Seller as
     secured party or all necessary and appropriate action with respect to such
     Receivable shall have been taken to perfect a first priority security
     interest in such Financed Vehicle in favor of the Seller as secured party.

          (vii) Receivables in Force. No Receivable shall have been satisfied,
     subordinated or rescinded, nor shall any Financed Vehicle have been
     released in whole or in part from the lien granted by the related
     Receivable.

          (viii) No Waivers. No provision of a Receivable shall have been waived
     in such a manner that such Receivable fails to meet all of the other
     representations and warranties made by the Seller herein with respect
     thereto.

          (ix) No Amendments. No Receivable shall have been amended in such a
     manner that the number of Scheduled Payments has been increased or that the
     related Amount Financed has been increased or such Receivable fails to meet
     all of the other representations and warranties made by the Seller herein
     with respect thereto.

          (x) No Defenses. No facts shall be known to the Seller which would
     give rise to any right of rescission, setoff, counterclaim or defense, nor
     shall the same have been asserted or threatened, with respect to any
     Receivable.

          (xi) No Liens. To the knowledge of the Seller, no liens or claims
     shall have been filed, including liens for work, labor or materials
     relating to a Financed Vehicle, that shall be liens prior to, or equal or
     coordinate with, the security interest in such Financed Vehicle granted by
     the related Receivable.

          (xii) No Defaults. Except for payment defaults continuing for a period
     of not more than 30 days as of the Cutoff Date, no default, breach,
     violation or event permitting acceleration under the terms of any
     Receivable shall have occurred and no continuing condition that with notice
     or the lapse of time would constitute a default, breach, violation or event
     permitting acceleration under the terms of any Receivable shall have


                                       7



     arisen; and the Seller shall not have waived any of the foregoing except as
     otherwise permitted hereunder.

          (xiii) Insurance. Pursuant to the Receivables, each Obligor has been
     required to obtain physical damage insurance covering the related Financed
     Vehicle and the Obligor is required under the terms of the related
     Receivable to maintain such insurance.

          (xiv) Good Title. It is the intention of the Seller that the transfer
     and assignment herein contemplated, taken as a whole, constitute a sale of
     the Receivables from the Seller to the Purchaser and that the beneficial
     interest in and title to the Receivables not be part of the debtor's estate
     in the event of the filing of a bankruptcy petition by or against the
     Seller under any bankruptcy law. No Receivable has been sold, transferred,
     assigned or pledged by the Seller to any Person other than the Purchaser,
     and no provision of a Receivable shall have been waived, except as provided
     in clause (viii) above; immediately prior to the transfer and assignment
     herein contemplated, the Seller had good and marketable title to each
     Receivable, free and clear of all Liens and rights of others; immediately
     upon the transfer and assignment thereof, the Purchaser shall have good and
     marketable title to each Receivable, free and clear of all Liens and rights
     of others; and the transfer and assignment herein contemplated has been
     perfected under the applicable UCC.

          (xv) Lawful Assignment. No Receivable shall have been originated in,
     or shall be subject to the laws of, any jurisdiction under which the sale,
     transfer and assignment of such Receivable under this Agreement or pursuant
     to the transfer of the Securities shall be unlawful, void or voidable.

          (xvi) All Filings Made. Both the Seller and the Purchaser,
     respectively, have caused or will have caused, within ten days of the
     Closing Date, the filing of all appropriate financing statements (including
     UCC filings) necessary in the appropriate jurisdictions under the
     applicable law to give the Indenture Trustee a first priority perfected
     ownership interest in the Receivables.

          (xvii) One Original. There shall be only one original executed copy of
     each Receivable.

          (xviii) Chattel Paper. Each Receivable constitutes "tangible chattel
     paper" as defined within the meaning of the applicable UCC.

          (xix) Additional Representations and Warranties. (A) Each Receivable
     shall have an original maturity of at least 24 months and not more than 72
     months and, as of the Cutoff Date, a remaining maturity of not less than 6
     months nor greater than 71 months; (B) each Receivable shall provide for
     payment of a finance charge or shall yield interest calculated on the basis
     of an APR ranging from 1.89% to 21.00%; (C) each Receivable shall have had
     an original principal balance of not less than $1,018.34 nor more than
     $56,882.66 and, as of the Cutoff Date, all of the Receivables shall have an
     average unpaid principal balance of $18,071.00; (D) each Receivable was
     originated on or after July 31, 2001 and on or prior to December 29, 2006;
     (E) each Financed Vehicle


                                       8



     shall be a new or used Honda or Acura motor vehicle; (F) the Obligor under
     each Receivable had a current billing address in the United States as of
     the Cutoff Date; and (G) no Receivable shall have a Scheduled Payment that
     is more than 30 days past due as of the Cutoff Date.

          (xx) Possession of Documents. The Servicer has in its possession all
     original copies of the agreements that constitute or evidence the
     Receivables. The agreements that constitute or evidence the Receivables do
     not have any marks or notations indicating that they have been pledged,
     assigned or otherwise conveyed to any Person other than the Indenture
     Trustee (pursuant to and as provided in the Sale and Servicing Agreement
     and the Indenture). All financing statements filed or to be filed against
     the Seller in favor of Purchaser and assigned to the Indenture Trustee in
     connection herewith describing the Receivables contain a statement to the
     following effect: "A purchase of or security interest in any collateral
     described in this financing statement will violate the rights of the
     Indenture Trustee."

     (b) Notice of Breach. The representations and warranties set forth in this
Section shall speak as of the execution and delivery of this Agreement, but
shall survive the sale, transfer and assignment of the Receivables to the
Purchaser and any subsequent assignment or transfer pursuant to the Sale and
Servicing Agreement. The Purchaser, the Seller, the Issuer, the Owner Trustee,
the Delaware Trustee or the Indenture Trustee, as the case may be, shall inform
the other parties promptly, in writing, upon discovery of any breach of the
Seller's representations and warranties pursuant to this Section which
materially and adversely affects the interests of the Noteholders in any
Receivable.

     (c) Repurchase of Receivables. In the event of a breach of any
representation or warranty set forth in Section 2.03(a) which materially and
adversely affects the interests of the Noteholders in any Receivable and unless
the breach shall have been cured by the last day of the second Collection Period
following the Collection Period in which the discovery of the breach is made or
notice is received, as the case may be (or, at the option of the Seller, the
last day in the first Collection Period following the Collection Period in which
such discovery is made), the Seller shall repurchase such Receivable. In
consideration of the purchase of any such Receivable, the Seller shall remit an
amount equal to the Warranty Purchase Payment in respect of such Receivable to
the Purchaser and shall be entitled to receive the Released Warranty Amount. In
the event that, as of the date of execution and delivery of this Agreement, any
Liens or claims shall have been filed, including Liens for work, labor or
materials relating to a Financed Vehicle, that shall be prior to, or equal or
coordinate with, the lien granted by the related Receivable (whether or not the
Seller has knowledge thereof), and such breach materially and adversely affects
the interests of the Noteholders in such Receivable, the Seller shall repurchase
such Receivable on the terms and in the manner specified above. Upon any such
repurchase, the Purchaser shall, without further action, be deemed to transfer,
assign, set-over and otherwise convey to the Seller, without recourse,
representation or warranty, all the right, title and interest of the Purchaser
in, to and under such repurchased Receivable, all monies due or to become due
with respect thereto and all proceeds thereof. The Purchaser, the Issuer, the
Owner Trustee, the Delaware Trustee or the Indenture Trustee, as applicable,
shall execute such documents and instruments of transfer or assignment and take
such other actions as shall reasonably be requested by the Seller to effect the
conveyance of such Receivable pursuant to


                                       9



this Section. The sole remedy of the Purchaser, the Issuer, the Trustees or the
Securityholders with respect to a breach of the Seller's representations and
warranties pursuant to Section 2.03(a) or with respect to the existence of any
such Liens or claims shall be to require the Seller to repurchase the related
Receivables pursuant to this Section.

     Section 2.04 Covenants of the Seller. The Seller hereby covenants that:

          (a) Security Interests. Except for the conveyances hereunder, the
     Seller will not sell, pledge, assign or transfer to any other Person, or
     grant, create, incur, assume or suffer to exist any Lien on any Receivable,
     whether now existing or hereafter created, or any interest therein; the
     Seller will immediately notify the Purchaser of the existence of any Lien
     on any Receivable and, in the event that the interests of the Noteholders
     in such Receivable are materially and adversely affected, such Receivable
     shall be repurchased from the Purchaser by the Seller in the manner and
     with the effect specified in Section 2.03(c), and the Seller shall defend
     the right, title and interest of the Purchaser in, to and under the
     Receivables, whether now existing or hereafter created, against all claims
     of third parties claiming through or under the Seller; provided, however,
     that nothing in this subsection shall prevent or be deemed to prohibit the
     Seller from suffering to exist upon a Receivable any Lien for municipal or
     other local taxes if such taxes shall not at the time be due and payable or
     if the Seller shall currently be contesting the validity of such taxes in
     good faith by appropriate proceedings and shall have set aside on its books
     adequate reserves with respect thereto.

          (b) Delivery of Payments. The Seller agrees to deliver in kind upon
     receipt to the Servicer under the Sale and Servicing Agreement (if other
     than the Seller) all payments received by the Seller in respect of the
     Receivables as soon as practicable after receipt thereof by the Seller.

          (c) No Impairment. The Seller shall take no action, nor omit to take
     any action, which would impair the rights of the Purchaser in any
     Receivable, nor shall it, except as otherwise provided in this Agreement or
     the Sale and Servicing Agreement, reschedule, revise or defer payments due
     on any Receivable.

                                 ARTICLE THREE

                      PAYMENT OF RECEIVABLES PURCHASE PRICE

     Section 3.01 Payment of Receivables Purchase Price. In consideration of the
sale of the Receivables from the Seller to the Purchaser as provided in Section
2.01, on the Closing Date the Purchaser agrees to pay the Seller an amount equal
to the Receivables Purchase Price. The Receivables Purchase Price shall be paid
in the form of (i) $1,175,362,618.80, the net cash proceeds from the public
offering by the Purchaser of the Notes and (ii) $76,487,887.76, being deemed
paid and returned to the Purchaser as a capital contribution.

the Issuer as provided in the Trust Agreement.

     Section 5.01 Amendment.

     (a) This Agreement may be amended from time to time by the Purchaser and
the Seller, without the consent of the Securityholders, to cure any ambiguity,
to correct or supplement any provision herein which may be inconsistent with any
other provision herein or to add any other provision with respect to matters or
questions arising under this Agreement which shall not be inconsistent with the
provisions of this Agreement or the Sale and Servicing Agreement; provided,
however, that such action shall not, as evidenced by an Opinion of Counsel to
the Purchaser delivered to the Indenture Trustee, adversely affect in any
material respect the interests of the Securityholders.

     (b) This Agreement may also be amended from time to time by the Purchaser
and the Seller with the consent of the Indenture Trustee, the consent of the
Holders of Notes evidencing at least a majority of the Outstanding Amount of the
Notes and the consent of the Holders (as such term is defined in the Trust
Agreement) of Certificates evidencing at least a majority of all the percentage
interests evidenced by the Certificates, for the purpose of adding any
provisions to or changing in any manner or eliminating any of the provisions of
this Agreement.

registered and filed, all in such manner and in such places as may be required
by law fully to preserve and protect the right, title and interest of the

available following such recording, registration or filing. The Purchaser shall
cooperate fully with the Seller in connection with the obligations set forth
above and will execute any and all documents reasonably required to fulfill the
intent of this subsection.

     (b) In the event that the Seller makes any change in its name, identity or
corporate structure which would make any financing statement or continuation
statement filed in accordance with Section 5.02(a) seriously misleading within
the meaning of Section 9-507(c) of the UCC as in effect in the applicable state,
the Seller shall give the Purchaser not less than 5


                                       11



days prior written notice of any such change and shall, within 30 days of such
change, execute and file such financing statements or amendments as may be
necessary to continue the perfection of the Purchaser's security interest in the
Receivables and the proceeds thereof.

     (c) The Seller will give the Purchaser prompt written notice of any
relocation of any office from which the Seller keeps records concerning the
Receivables or of its principal executive office and whether, as a result of
such relocation, the applicable provisions of the UCC would require the filing
of any amendment of any previously filed financing or continuation statement or

statements or amendments as may be necessary to continue the perfection of the
interest of the Purchaser in the Receivables and the proceeds thereof.

covenants, agreements, provisions or terms of this Agreement shall for any
reason whatsoever be held invalid, then such covenants, agreements, provisions
