(d)      All of the Issuer’s right, title and interest with respect to the 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note has been assigned to the Indenture Trustee pursuant to the Indenture.  The Indenture Trustee shall be listed in the Exchange Note Register as the Registered Pledgee of the 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note until the Outstanding Amount of the Notes has been reduced to zero and all Issuer Obligations have been paid in full (at which time the rights of the Indenture Trustee as Registered Pledgee of the 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note shall terminate).  The Lender has caused the 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note to be delivered to the Indenture Trustee in New York, New York.  The Registered Pledgee shall have the rights granted to the 20[__]-[_] Exchange Noteholder as described in the Basic Collateral Agency Agreement.  As the Registered Pledgee, the Indenture Trustee shall be entitled to exercise any and all rights or powers of a holder hereunder and under the Basic Collateral Agency Agreement, to the extent set forth in Section 6.13 of the Indenture.

(b)      On each Payment Date, the Indenture Trustee will deposit into the 20[__]-[_] Reserve Account all 20[__]-[_] Available Funds in accordance with Section 8.03(a)(iv) of the Indenture until the amount on deposit in the 20[__]-[_] Reserve Account equals the Required Reserve Amount.

(c)      Notwithstanding any other provision of this 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note Supplement or the Basic Servicing Agreement, in the event that any 20[__]-[_] Vehicle is sold or otherwise disposed of by the Servicer, each of the 20[__]-[_] Exchange Noteholder and the Registered Pledgee (i) for as long as no Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, will be deemed automatically to release, and immediately prior to such sale or other disposition, does hereby agree to release at such time, any and all Liens and other rights and interests it possesses or may possess from time to time, without further action of the parties, in, to and under such 20[__]-[_] Vehicle, the proceeds thereof (including pursuant to any Insurance Policy) with respect to or covering such 20[__]-[_] Vehicle and any contract or agreement for the sale or other disposition of such 20[__]-[_] Vehicle, and (ii) during the occurrence and continuance of an Event of Default, shall continue to have all rights and interests it possesses or may possess from time to time with respect to or covering such 20[__]-[_] Vehicle and any contract or agreement for the sale or other disposition of such 20[__]-[_] Vehicle, the proceeds thereof (including pursuant to any Insurance Policy) with respect to or covering such 20[__]-[_] Vehicle and any contract or agreement for the sale or other disposition of such Vehicle until the actual net proceeds of such sale or other disposition have been deposited into the 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note Collection Account.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing herein shall otherwise constitute a release of any rights under the 20[__]-[_] Basic Documents to receive an amount equal to the proceeds of such sale or other disposition.

7

(d)      Upon repayment in full of the 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note and all Issuer Obligations or following release of the Trust Estate pursuant to Section 8.05(b) of the Indenture, the 20[__]-[_] Reference Pool will be deemed to be terminated and the 20[__]-[_] Leases and 20[__]-[_] Vehicles included in the 20[__]-[_] Reference Pool will be reallocated to the Revolving Facility Pool.

REVERSE OF 20[__]-[_] EXCHANGE NOTE

This 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note is one of the duly authorized issue of Exchange Notes, which may be issued under the Basic Collateral Agency Agreement, to which Basic Collateral Agency Agreement and all Exchange Note Supplements that are supplemental thereto reference is made for a statement of the respective rights and obligations thereunder of the Borrower, the Lender, the Servicer, the Administrative Agent, the Collateral Agent and the Exchange Noteholders.  The 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note is subject to all terms of the Basic Collateral Agency Agreement and the Exchange Note Supplement.  In the event of a conflict between the terms of this 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note, the Basic Collateral Agency Agreement and the Exchange Note Supplement, the terms of the Exchange Note Supplement will prevail.  The 20[__]-[_] Exchange Noteholder, by accepting this 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note, will be deemed to have agreed to the terms and conditions of the Basic Collateral Agency Agreement and the Exchange Note Supplement with the same effect as if such 20[__]-[_] Exchange Noteholder had been a party to the Basic Collateral Agency Agreement and the 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note Supplement.

Interest on and principal of the 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note will be payable in accordance with the priority of payments set forth in Sections 5.01 and 5.02 of the Exchange Note Supplement.  Principal of the 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note will be payable on each Payment Date in an amount equal to the 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note Principal Distributable Amount for such Payment Date.  “Payment Date” means the [15th] day of each calendar month or, if any such day is not a Business Day, the next Business Day, commencing [_____ __], 20[__].

As described on the face hereof, the entire unpaid principal amount of this 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note will be due and payable on the 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note Final Scheduled Payment Date.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, the entire unpaid principal amount of this 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note will be due and payable on the date on which an Exchange Note Default with respect to the 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note has occurred and is continuing and the 20[__]-[_] Exchange Noteholder has declared the 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note to be immediately due and payable in the manner provided in the Basic Collateral Agency Agreement.

Payments of interest on this 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note on each Payment Date, together with the installment of principal to the extent not in full payment of this 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note, will be made to the account of the 20[__]-[_] Exchange Noteholder either by wire transfer in immediately available funds, to the account of such 20[__]-[_] Exchange Noteholder or an account designated by the 20[__]-[_] Exchange Noteholder at a bank or other entity having appropriate facilities therefor if such 20[__]-[_] Exchange Noteholder has provided to the Exchange Note Registrar appropriate written instructions at least five Business Days prior to such Payment Date or, if not, by check mailed first-class mail postage prepaid to the 20[__]-[_] Exchange Noteholder’s address as it appears on the Exchange Note Register prior to such Payment Date, except that the final installment of principal payable on this 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note on a Payment Date or the 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note Final Scheduled Payment Date will be payable only upon the presentation and surrender of this 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note in the manner set forth in Section 4.05 of the Basic Collateral Agency Agreement.  Such payments will be made without requiring that this 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note be submitted for notation of payment.  Any reduction in the principal amount of this 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note effected by any payments made on any Payment Date will be binding upon all future 20[__]-[_] Exchange Noteholders of this 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note and of any 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note issued upon the registration of transfer hereof or in exchange hereof or in lieu hereof, whether or not noted hereon.  If funds are expected to be available, as provided in the Exchange Note Supplement and the Basic Collateral Agency Agreement, for payment in full of the then remaining unpaid principal amount of this 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note on a Payment Date, then the Administrative Agent will notify the 20[__]-[_] Exchange Noteholder of the date on which the Borrower expects that the final installment of principal of and interest on the 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note will be paid not later than 15 days prior to such date.  Such notice will specify that such final installment will be payable only upon presentation and surrender of the 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note and will specify the place where the 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note may be presented and surrendered for payment of such installment.

A-4

As provided in the 20[__]-[_] Servicing Supplement, the 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note may be purchased by the Servicer, in whole but not in part, in the manner and to the extent described in Section 5.01 of the 20[__]-[_] Servicing Supplement.

The transfer of this 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note is subject to the restrictions on transfer specified on the face hereof and to the other limitations set forth in the Basic Collateral Agency Agreement and the Exchange Note Supplement.  Subject to the satisfaction of such restrictions and limitations, the transfer of this 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note may be registered on the Exchange Note Register upon surrender of this 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note for registration of transfer at the office or agency designated by the Borrower pursuant to the Basic Collateral Agency Agreement, duly endorsed by, or accompanied by a written instrument of transfer in form satisfactory to the Administrative Agent duly executed by, the 20[__]-[_] Exchange Noteholder hereof or the 20[__]-[_] Exchange Noteholder’s attorney duly authorized in writing, with such signature guaranteed by an “eligible guarantor institution” meeting the requirements of the Exchange Note Registrar, and thereupon a new 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note in the same aggregate principal amount will be issued to the designated transferee.  No service charge will be charged for any registration of transfer or exchange of this 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note, but the transferor may be required to pay a sum sufficient to cover any tax or other governmental charge that may be imposed in connection with any such registration of transfer or exchange.

The 20[__]-[_] Exchange Noteholder, by accepting this 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note, acknowledges and agrees that (i) if an Insolvency Event occurs with respect to the Borrower, any claim that the 20[__]-[_] Exchange Noteholder may seek to enforce at any time against the Borrower will be limited in recourse to the 20[__]-[_] Reference Pool, (ii) if, notwithstanding clause (i) above, the 20[__]-[_] Exchange Noteholder is deemed to have any claim against the assets of the Borrower other than the assets included in the 20[__]-[_] Reference Pool, whether by operation of law, legal process, pursuant to Insolvency Laws or otherwise (including by virtue of Section 1111(b) of the Bankruptcy Code), such claim will be subordinate to the payment in full, including post-petition interest, of the claims of the Lender and to the holders of (a) all other Exchange Notes and (b) in the case of assets allocated to a Specified Interest other than the Daimler Retail Specified Interest, all other asset-backed securities, the payments on which are derived primarily from collections on designated assets of the Borrower and all related hedging arrangements and (iii) the 20[__]-[_] Exchange Noteholder irrevocably makes the election afforded to secured creditors by Section 1111(b)(I)(A)(i) of the Bankruptcy Code to receive the treatment afforded by Section 1111(b)(2) of the Bankruptcy Code with respect to any secured claim that such holder or party, as the case may be, may have against the Titling Trust or against any Series other than the Series in connection with which this 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note is issued.

THE RECITATION SET FORTH IN THE PRECEDING PARAGRAPH WILL BE DEEMED TO CONSTITUTE AN ENFORCEABLE SUBORDINATION AGREEMENT WITHIN THE MEANING OF SECTION 510(a) OF THE BANKRUPTCY CODE.

In addition, the 20[__]-[_] Exchange Noteholder, by accepting this 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note, (i) consents to the Administrative Agent’s delegation under the Administration Agreement to the Collateral Agent Administrator of certain of the duties that the Administrative Agent is required to perform on behalf of the Collateral Agent pursuant to the Basic Collateral Agency Agreement and (ii) agrees that, in the event that any 20[__]-[_] Vehicle is sold or otherwise disposed of by the Servicer pursuant to the 20[__]-[_] Servicing Agreement, it will be deemed automatically to release, and immediately prior to such sale or other disposition, does hereby agree to release at such time, any and all Liens and other rights and interests it possesses or may possess from time to time, without further action of the parties, in, to and under such 20[__]-[_] Vehicle, the proceeds thereof (including pursuant to any Insurance Policy) with respect to or covering such 20[__]-[_] Vehicle and any contract or agreement for the sale or other disposition of such 20[__]-[_] Vehicle.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing herein shall constitute a release of any rights under the 20[__]-[_] Basic Documents to receive an amount equal to the proceeds of such sale or other disposition.

The 20[__]-[_] Exchange Noteholder, by accepting this 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note, covenants and agrees that for a period of one year and one day (or, if longer, any applicable preference period) after payment in full of all Secured Obligations under the Basic Collateral Agency Agreement, the Exchange Note Supplement, the Exchange Notes, the outstanding Certificates and the outstanding Securities, it will not institute against the Titling Trust, the Initial Beneficiary or the Transferor, or join in any institution against the Titling Trust, the Initial Beneficiary or the Transferor of, any bankruptcy, reorganization, arrangement, insolvency or liquidation Proceedings, or other Proceedings under any Insolvency Law in connection with any obligations relating to the 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note, the Basic Collateral Agency Agreement, the Exchange Note Supplement or any of the other 20[__]-[_] Basic Documents and agrees that it will not cooperate with or encourage others to institute any such Proceedings.

The Borrower has entered into the Exchange Note Supplement and this 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note is issued with the intention that, for U.S. federal, State and local income, single business and franchise tax purposes, this 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note will represent ownership of the 20[__]-[_] Reference Pool.  The 20[__]-[_] Exchange Noteholder, by its acceptance of this 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note, will be deemed to agree to treat this 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note for U.S. federal, State and local income, single business and franchise tax purposes in accordance with such treatment unless otherwise required by law.

Prior to the due presentment for registration of transfer of this 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note, the Borrower and the Administrative Agent and any agent of the Borrower or the Administrative Agent may treat the Person in whose name this 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note (as of the day of determination or as of such other date as may be specified in the Exchange Note Supplement) is registered as the owner hereof for all purposes, whether or not this 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note is overdue, and none of the Borrower, the Administrative Agent or any such agent will be affected by notice to the contrary.

A-6

The Basic Collateral Agency Agreement permits the amendment thereof (in any manner and for any purpose) by the parties thereto so long as each Exchange Noteholder of an Outstanding Exchange Note has consented to such amendment.  The Basic Collateral Agency Agreement also permits the amendment thereof to amend or waive certain terms and conditions set forth therein without the consent of the Exchange Noteholders; provided certain conditions are satisfied.  Any such consent by the 20[__]-[_] Exchange Noteholder will be conclusive and binding upon the 20[__]-[_] Exchange Noteholder and upon all future holders of this 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note and of any 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note issued upon the registration of transfer hereof or in exchange hereof or in lieu hereof whether or not notation of such consent or waiver is made upon this 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note.

THIS 20[__]-[_] EXCHANGE NOTE, THE BASIC COLLATERAL AGENCY AGREEMENT AND THE EXCHANGE NOTE SUPPLEMENT WILL BE GOVERNED BY, AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH, THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF DELAWARE.

No reference herein to the Basic Collateral Agency Agreement or the Exchange Note Supplement, and no provision of this 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note or of the Basic Collateral Agency Agreement, will alter or impair the obligation of the Borrower, which is absolute and unconditional, to pay the principal of and interest on this 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note at the times, place and rate, and in the coin or currency herein prescribed.

Anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding, except as expressly provided in the 20[__]-[_] Basic Documents, none of U.S. Bank Trust National Association in its individual capacity, or Daimler Title Co., in its individual capacity, or any of their respective affiliates, partners, beneficiaries, agents, officers, directors, employees or successors or assigns, will be personally liable for, nor will recourse be had to any of them for, the payment of principal of or interest on this 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note or performance of, or omission to perform, any of the covenants, obligations or indemnifications contained in the Basic Collateral Agency Agreement or the Exchange Note Supplement.  The 20[__]-[_] Exchange Noteholder, by its acceptance hereof, agrees that, except as expressly provided in the 20[__]-[_] Basic Documents, in the case of an Exchange Note Default under the Basic Collateral Agency Agreement or the Exchange Note Supplement, the 20[__]-[_] Exchange Noteholder will have no claim against any of the foregoing for any deficiency, loss or claim therefrom; provided,  however, that nothing contained herein will be taken to prevent recourse to, and enforcement against, the assets of the Borrower for any and all liabilities, obligations and undertakings contained in the Basic Collateral Agency Agreement, the Exchange Note Supplement or in this 20[__]-[_] Exchange Note.
