The note issuance is an asset-backed securities transaction backed by prime auto loan receivables.

The ratings reflect: The availability of approximately 11.3% credit support at the 'AAA' rating level, 9.6% at the 'AA+' level, 7.1% at the 'AA' level, and 5.3% at the 'A-' level (based on stressed cash flow scenarios), including excess spread, which provides more than 5.00x, 4.50x, 4.00x, and 2.67x coverage, respectively, of our 1.50%-1.70% expected loss range for the notes.
