The Agent will promptly notify the Company or each of the Bank Investors, as the case may be, of the Agent's receipt of any Subsequent Funding Notice to be made to the Agent on behalf of such Person. To the extent that any such Subsequent Funding is requested of the Agent on behalf of the Company, the Company shall instruct the Agent to accept or reject such offer by notice given to the Issuer and the Agent by telephone or telecopy by no later than the close of its business on the Business Day following its receipt of any such request. The parties hereto understand that in no event shall the Net Investment be held by the Agent on behalf of the Company and the Bank Investors simultaneously, except in the case of an assignment to a Bank Investor pursuant to Section 5.9(f) hereof. (c) By making any advance hereunder, neither the Company, the Agent nor any Bank Investor assumes or shall have any obligations or liability under any of the Receivables, all of which shall remain the obligations and liabilities of the Issuer, AmeriCredit and AFC II. (d) CONDITIONS TO FUNDING. Neither the Company nor the Bank Investors shall, and shall have no obligation to, advance any funds to the Issuer in connection 6 with any Funding if on the date of the proposed Funding, (i) either (x) if the Funding is to be made by the Company, the sum of the Net Investment after giving effect to the Funding, plus the Interest Component of Commercial Paper issued in connection with such Funding would exceed the Facility Limit, or (y) if the Funding is to be made by the Bank Investors, the Net Investment, after giving effect to the Funding, would exceed the aggregate Commitments; (ii) the Issuer is not in compliance with Section 5.3 of the Security Agreement; (iii) the Issuer shall not have deposited in the Reserve Account, or shall not have given irrevocable instructions to the Agent to withhold from proceeds of such Funding, an amount equal to the amount necessary to cause the amount on deposit in the Reserve Account to equal the Reserve Account Floor; (calculated as if such Funding shall have occurred); (iv) a Potential Termination Event or Termination Event shall have occurred and be continuing; (v) the conditions precedent set forth in Sections 4.1 and 4.2 of the Security Agreement shall not be satisfied; (vi) the representations and warranties in Section 3.1 hereof shall not be true and correct; (vii) after giving effect to such Funding, the Net Investment shall be greater than the product of (a) the Noteholder's Percentage and (b) the sum of the Net Receivables Balance and Collections on deposit in the Collection Account; or (viii) each of the Agent and the Issuer shall not have received, duly executed and delivered by Wells Fargo, a lien release substantially in the form specified in Section 1(b) of the Intercreditor Agreement and, in the case of the Initial Funding, a release on form UCC-3 with respect to the related Receivables. (e) INITIAL FUNDING REQUEST AND SUBSEQUENT FUNDING NOTICES IRREVOCABLE. The Initial Funding Request and any Subsequent Funding Notice shall be irrevocable and binding on the Issuer and the Issuer shall indemnify the Agent, the Company and the Bank Investors against any loss or expense incurred by the Company or the Bank Investors, either directly or indirectly (including through the Liquidity Provider Agreement) as a result of any failure by the Issuer to complete the requested Funding including, without limitation, any loss (including loss of anticipated profits) or expense incurred by the Agent, the Company or the Bank Investors, either directly or indirectly (including pursuant to the Liquidity Provider Agreement), by reason of the liquidation or reemployment of funds acquired by the Company (or the Liquidity Provider) (including, without limitation, funds obtained by issuing commercial paper or promissory notes or obtaining deposits or loans from third parties) for the Company or the Bank Investors to complete the requested Funding. (f) PAYMENTS. By no later than 11:00 a.m. (New York time) on the date of any Funding, the Company or each Bank Investor, as the case may be, shall remit its share (which, in the case of a Subsequent Funding to the Bank Investors, shall be equal to such Bank Investor's Pro Rata Share) of the amount of such Funding to be advanced by the Company or the Bank Investors to the Issuer as set forth in the Initial Funding Request or the applicable Subsequent Funding Notice, as the case may be (the "Transfer Price") to the account of the Agent specified therefor from time to time by the Agent by notice to such Persons. The obligation of each Bank Investor to remit its Pro Rata Share of any such Transfer Price shall be several from that of each other Bank Investor, and the failure of any Bank Investor to so make such amount available to the Agent shall not relieve any other Bank Investor of its obligation hereunder. Following each Subsequent Funding and the Agent's receipt of funds from the Company or the Bank Investors as set forth above, the Agent shall remit such funds received in respect of the Transfer Price to the Issuer's account at the location indicated in Section 6.3 hereof, in immediately available funds. Unless the Agent shall have received notice from the 7 Company or any Bank Investor, as applicable, that such Person will not make its share of any Transfer Price relating to any Subsequent Funding available on the applicable Transfer Date therefor, the Agent may (but shall have no obligation to) make the Company's or any such Bank Investor's share of any such Transfer Price available to the Issuer in anticipation of the receipt by the Agent of such amount from the Company or such Bank Investor. To the extent the Company or any such Bank Investor fails to remit any such amount to the Agent after any such advance by the Agent on such Transfer Date, the Company or such Bank Investor, on the one hand, and the Issuer, on the other hand, shall be required to pay such amount, together with interest thereon at a per annum rate equal to the Federal funds rate (as determined in accordance with clause (ii) of the definition of "Base Rate"), in the case of the Company or any such Bank Investor, or the Base Rate, in the case of the Issuer, to the Agent upon its demand therefor (PROVIDED that the Company shall have no obligation to pay such interest amounts except to the extent that it shall have sufficient funds to pay the face amount of its Commercial Paper in full). Until such amount shall be repaid, such amount shall be deemed to be Net Investment paid by the Agent and the Agent shall be deemed to be the owner of an interest in the Note hereunder. Upon the payment of such amount to the Agent (x) by the Issuer, the amount of the aggregate Net Investment shall be reduced by such amount or (y) by the Company or such Bank Investor, such payment shall constitute such Person's payment of its share of the applicable Transfer Price for such Funding. Notwithstanding anything contained in this Section 2.1(f) or elsewhere in this Agreement to the contrary, no Bank Investor shall be obligated to provide the Agent or the Issuer with funds in connection with any Funding in an amount that would exceed such Bank Investor's unused Commitment then in effect. The failure of any Bank Investor to make its Pro Rata Share of the Transfer Price available to the Agent shall not relieve any other Bank Investor of its obligations hereunder. (g) DEFAULTING BANK INVESTOR. If by 2:00 P.M. (New York time), whether or not the Agent has advanced the Transfer Price, one or more Bank Investors (each, a "DEFAULTING BANK INVESTOR", and each Bank Investor other than the Defaulting Bank Investor being referred to as a "NON-DEFAULTING BANK INVESTOR") fails to make its Pro Rata Share of the Transfer Price available to the Agent pursuant to Section 2.1(f) hereof (the aggregate amount not so made available to the Agent being herein called the "TRANSFER PRICE DEFICIT"), then the Agent shall, by no later than 2:30 P.M. (New York time on the Transfer Date), instruct each Non-Defaulting Bank Investor to pay, by no later than 3:00 P.M. (New York time on the Transfer Date), in immediately available funds, to the account designated by the Agent, an amount equal to the lesser of (x) such Non-Defaulting Bank Investor's proportionate share (based upon the relative Commitments of the Non-Defaulting Bank Investors) of the Transfer Price Deficit and (y) its unused Commitment. A Defaulting Bank Investor shall forthwith, upon demand, pay to the Agent for the ratable benefit of the Non-Defaulting Bank Investors all amounts paid by each Non-Defaulting Bank Investor on behalf of such Defaulting Bank Investor, together with interest thereon, for each day from the date a payment was made by a Non-Defaulting Bank Investor until the date such Non-Defaulting Bank Investor has been paid such amounts in full, at a rate per annum equal to the sum of the Base Rate PLUS 2%. (h) DISBURSEMENT OF FUNDS. No later than 3:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the date on which a Funding is to be made, the Company or the Bank Investors, as applicable, will make available to the Issuer in immediately available funds, the amount of the 8 Funding to be made on such day by remitting the required amount thereof to an account of the Issuer as designated in the related notice requesting such Funding. (i) THE NOTE. (i) The Issuer's obligation to pay the principal of and interest on all amounts advanced by the Company or the Bank Investors pursuant to any Funding shall be evidenced by a single note of the Issuer (the "Note") which shall (1) be dated the Closing Date; (2) be in the stated principal amount equal to the Facility Limit (as reflected from time to time on the grid attached thereto); (3) bear interest as provided therein; (4) be payable to the order of the Agent for the account of the Company or the Bank Investors, as applicable, and mature on the Remittance Date occurring in the sixth calendar month following the calendar month in which the latest maturing Receivable (determined as of the Termination Date) is scheduled to mature (without regard to extensions subsequently granted on any Receivable by the Issuer or the Collection Agent); (5) be entitled to the benefit of the Security Agreement and (6) be substantially in the form of Exhibit D to this Agreement, with blanks appropriately completed in conformity herewith. The Agent shall, and is hereby authorized to, make a notation on the schedule attached to the Note of the date and the amount of each Funding and the date and amount of the payment of principal thereon, and prior to any transfer of the Note, the Agent shall endorse the outstanding principal amount of the Note on the schedule attached thereto; provided, however, that failure to make such notation shall not adversely affect the Company's or any Bank Investor's rights with respect to the Note. (ii) Although the Note shall be dated the Closing Date, interest in respect thereof shall be payable only for the periods during which amounts are outstanding thereunder. In addition, although the stated principal amount of the Note shall be equal to the Facility Limit, the Note shall be enforceable with respect to the Issuer's obligation to pay the principal thereof only to the extent of the unpaid principal amount of the Fundings outstanding thereunder at the time such enforcement shall be sought. Section 2.2. SHARING OF PAYMENTS, ETC. If the Company or any Bank Investor (for purposes of this Section only, being a "RECIPIENT") shall obtain any payment (whether voluntary, involuntary, through the exercise of any right of setoff, or otherwise) on account of any interest in the Note owned by it in excess of its ratable share of payments on account of any interest in the Note obtained by the Company and/or the Bank Investors entitled thereto, such Recipient shall forthwith purchase from the Company and/or the Bank Investors entitled to a share of such amount participations in the percentage interests owned by such Persons as shall be necessary to cause such Recipient to share the excess payment ratably with each such other Person entitled thereto; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that if all or any portion of such excess payment is thereafter recovered from such Recipient, such purchase from each such other Person shall be rescinded and each such other Person shall repay to the Recipient the purchase price paid by such Recipient for such participation to the extent of such recovery, together with an amount equal to such other Person's ratable share (according to the proportion of (a) the amount of such other Person's required payment to (b) the total amount so recovered from the Recipient) of any interest or other amount paid or payable by the Recipient in respect of the total amount so recovered. 9 Section 2.3 RIGHT OF SETOFF. Without in any way limiting the provisions of Section 2.2 hereof, each of the Agent, the Company and the Bank Investors is hereby authorized (in addition to any other rights it may have) at any time after the occurrence of a Termination Event or during the continuance of a Potential Termination Event to set-off, appropriate and apply (without presentment, demand, protest or other notice which are hereby expressly waived) any deposits and any other indebtedness held or owing by the Agent, the Company or such Bank Investor to, or for the account of, the Issuer against the Aggregate Unpaids owing by the Issuer to such Person (even if contingent or unmatured). Section 2.4. FEES. The Issuer shall pay, in accordance with the Fee Letter, such fees as are described therein, all of which shall be non-refundable. Section 2.5. SELECTION OF FUNDING PERIODS AND INTEREST RATES. (a) PRIOR TO THE TERMINATION DATE; TRANSFERRED INTEREST HELD ON BEHALF OF THE COMPANY. At all times hereafter, but prior to the Termination Date and with respect to the Transferred Interest held by the Agent on behalf of the Company, the Issuer may, subject to the Company's approval and the limitations described below, request funding periods and allocate a portion of the Net Investment to each selected funding period, so that the aggregate amounts allocated to outstanding funding periods at all times shall equal the Net Investment held on behalf of the Company. The Issuer shall give the Company irrevocable notice by telephone of the requested funding period(s) at least one (1) Business Day prior by 12:00 p.m. (New York time) to the requested Funding Date or the expiration of any then existing funding period; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that the Company may select, in its sole discretion, any such funding period if (i) the Issuer fails to provide such notice on a timely basis or (ii) the Company determines, in its sole discretion, that the funding period requested by the Issuer is unavailable or for any reason commercially undesirable to any party. The Company confirms that it is its intention to allocate all or substantially all of the Net Investment held on behalf of it to one or more funding periods with respect to which the interest rate applicable thereto is calculated by reference to the CP Rate; provided that the Company may determine, from time to time, in its sole discretion, that funding such Net Investment by means of the CP Rate is not possible or is not desirable for any reason. If the Liquidity Provider acquires from the Company a Purchased Interest with respect to the Receivables pursuant to the terms of the Liquidity Provider Agreement, Bank of America, on behalf of the Liquidity Provider, may exercise the right of selection granted to the Company hereby. The initial funding period applicable to any such Purchased Interest shall be a period of not greater than 14 days and Discount with respect thereto shall be calculated by reference to the Base Rate. Thereafter, provided that the Termination Date caused by a Termination Event shall not have occurred, Discount shall be calculated by reference to the Eurodollar Rate and, if such rate is not available, the Base Rate. In the case of any funding period outstanding upon the occurrence of the Termination Date, such funding period shall end on the date of such occurrence. (b) AFTER THE TERMINATION DATE; TRANSFERRED INTEREST HELD ON BEHALF OF THE COMPANY. At all times on and after the Termination Date, with respect to any portion of the Transferred Interest which shall be held by the Agent on behalf of the Company, the Agent shall select all funding periods. At all times after the Termination Date but prior to the occurrence of a Termination Event, Discount shall be calculated by reference to the CP Rate; after the 10 occurrence of a Termination Event, Discount shall be determined as set forth in Section 6.2 of the Security Agreement. If the Liquidity Provider acquires from the Company a Purchased Interest with respect to the Receivables pursuant to the terms of the Liquidity Provider Agreement, Bank of America, on behalf of the Liquidity Provider, may exercise the right of selection granted to the Company hereby. The initial funding period applicable to any such Purchased Interest shall be a period of not greater than 14 days and Discount with respect thereto shall be calculated by reference to the Base Rate. Thereafter, PROVIDED that a Termination Event shall not have occurred, Discount shall be calculated by reference to the Eurodollar Rate and, if such rate is not available, the Base Rate. (c) PRIOR TO THE TERMINATION DATE; TRANSFERRED INTEREST HELD ON BEHALF OF BANK INVESTOR.

Thereafter, with respect to such portion, and with respect to any other portion of the Transferred Interest held on behalf of the Bank Investors (or any of them), PROVIDED that the Termination Date caused by a Termination Event shall not have occurred, the funding period applicable thereto shall be determined by the Issuer and Discount with respect thereto shall be calculated by reference to the Eurodollar Rate and, if such rate is not available, the Base Rate; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that no funding period shall be greater than 90 days. The Issuer shall give the Agent irrevocable notice by telephone of the new requested funding period at least three (3) Business Days prior to the expiration of any then existing funding period.

(e) EURODOLLAR RATE PROTECTION; ILLEGALITY. (i) If the Agent is unable to obtain on a timely basis the information necessary to determine the Eurodollar Rate for any proposed funding period, then (1) the Agent shall forthwith notify the Company or Bank Investors, as applicable and the Issuer that the Eurodollar Rate cannot be determined for such funding period, and (2) while such circumstances exist, neither the Company, the Bank Investors nor the Agent shall allocate the Net Investment of any additional advances during such period or reallocate the Net Investment allocated to any then existing 11 funding period ending during such period, to a funding period with respect to which Discount is calculated by reference to the Eurodollar Rate. (ii) If, with respect to any outstanding funding period, the Company or any of the Bank Investors on behalf of which the Agent holds any Transferred Interest therein notifies the Agent that it is unable to obtain matching deposits in the London interbank market to fund any advance or to maintain such Transferred Interest or that the Eurodollar Rate applicable to such Transferred Interest will not adequately reflect the cost to the Person of funding or maintaining its respective Transferred Interest for such funding period then the Agent shall forthwith so notify the Issuer, whereupon neither the Agent nor the Company or the Bank Investors, as applicable, shall, while such circumstances exist, allocate any Net Investment of any additional Transferred Interest purchased during such period or reallocate the Net Investment allocated to any funding period ending during such period, to a funding period with respect to which Discount is calculated by reference to the Eurodollar Rate. (iii) Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, if the Company or any of the Bank Investors, as applicable, shall notify the Agent that such Person has determined (or has been notified by any Liquidity Provider) that the introduction of or any change in or in the interpretation of any law or regulation makes it unlawful (either for the Company, such Bank Investor, or such Liquidity Provider, as applicable), or any central bank or other governmental authority asserts that it is unlawful, for the Company, such Bank Investor or such Liquidity Provider, as applicable, to fund any advance or to maintain the Transferred Interest the Discount with respect to which is calculated by reference to the Eurodollar Rate, then (x) as of the effective date of such notice from such Person to the Agent, the obligation or ability of the Company or such Bank Investor, as applicable, to fund its purchase or maintenance of the Transferred Interest at a Discount calculated by reference to the Eurodollar Rate shall be suspended until such Person notifies the Agent that the circumstances causing such suspension no longer exist and (y) the Net Investment of each funding period in which such Person owns an interest shall either (1) if such Person may lawfully continue to maintain the Transferred Interest at a Discount calculated by reference to the Eurodollar Rate until the last day of the applicable funding period, be reallocated on the last day of such funding period to another funding period in respect of which the Net Investment allocated thereto accrues Discount determined other than with respect to the Eurodollar Rate or (2) if such Person shall determine that it may not lawfully continue to maintain the Transferred Interest at a Discount calculated by reference to the Eurodollar Rate until the end of the applicable funding period, such Person's share of the Net Investment allocated to such funding period shall be deemed to accrue Discount at the Base Rate from the effective date of such notice until the end of such funding period.

If no successor Agent shall have been so appointed by the Majority Investors and shall have accepted such appointment within thirty (30) days after the retiring Agent's giving of notice of resignation, then the retiring Agent may, on behalf of the Company and the Bank Investors, appoint a successor Agent which shall be a commercial bank organized under the laws of the United States having combined capital and surplus of at least $100,000,000. Upon the acceptance of any appointment as Agent 22 hereunder by a successor, such successor shall thereupon succeed to and become vested with all the rights, powers, discretion, privileges, and duties of the retiring Agent, and the retiring Agent shall be discharged from its duties and obligations hereunder. After any retiring Agent's resignation hereunder as Agent, the provisions of this Article V shall continue in effect for its benefit in respect of any actions taken or omitted to be taken by it while it was acting as Agent. Section 5.8. PAYMENTS BY THE AGENT. Unless specifically allocated to a Bank Investor pursuant to the terms of this Agreement, all amounts received by the Agent on behalf of the Bank Investors shall be paid by the Agent to the Bank Investors (at their respective accounts specified in their respective Assignment and Assumption Agreements) in accordance with their respective related pro rata interests in the Net Investment on the Business Day received by the Agent, unless such amounts are received after 12:00 noon on such Business Day, in which case the Agent shall use its reasonable efforts to pay such amounts to the Bank Investors on such Business Day, but, in any event, shall pay such amounts to the Bank Investors in accordance with their respective related pro rata interests in the Net Investment not later than the following Business Day. Section 5.9. BANK COMMITMENT; ASSIGNMENT TO BANK INVESTORS. (a) BANK COMMITMENT. At any time on or prior to the Commitment Termination Date, in the event that the Company does not effect the Initial Funding or a Subsequent Funding as requested under Section 2.1, then at any time, the Issuer shall have the right to require the Company to assign its interest in the Note and the Net Investment in whole to the Bank Investors pursuant to this Section 5.9(a). In addition, at any time on or prior to the Commitment Termination Date (i) upon the occurrence of a Termination Event that results in the Termination Date or (ii) in the event that the Company elects to give notice to the Issuer of an Investment Termination Date, the Issuer hereby requests and directs that the Company assign its interest in the Note and the Net Investment in whole to the Bank Investors pursuant to this Section 5.9(a) and the Issuer hereby agrees to pay the amounts described in Section 5.9(c) below. No further documentation or action on the part of the Company shall be required to exercise the rights set forth in the immediately preceding sentence, other than, in the case of clause (i) of such sentence, receipt of notice by the Bank Investors from the Agent that a Termination Date has occurred or, in the case of clause (ii) of such sentence, the giving of the notice set forth in such clause and the delivery by the Agent of a copy of such notice to each Bank Investor (the date of the receipt of a notice referred to in such clauses being the "EFFECTIVE DATE"). Each Bank Investor hereby agrees, unconditionally and irrevocably and under all circumstances, without setoff, counterclaim or defense of any kind, to pay the full amount of its Assignment Amount on such Effective Date to the Company in immediately available funds to an account designated by the Agent. Upon payment of its Assignment Amount, each Bank Investor shall acquire its Pro Rata Share of its interest in the Note and the Net Investment and shall assume its respective portion of the Company's obligations hereunder, and the Company shall be released from such portion of such obligations. If, by 2:00 P.M. (New York time) on the Effective Date, one or more Bank Investors (each, a "DEFAULTING BANK INVESTOR", and each Bank Investor other than any Defaulting Bank Investor being referred to as a "NON-DEFAULTING BANK INVESTOR") fails to pay its Assignment Amount (the aggregate amount not so made available to the Company being herein called the "ASSIGNMENT AMOUNT DEFICIT"), then the Agent shall, by no later than 2:30 P.M. (New York time) on the Effective Date, instruct each Non-Defaulting Bank Investor to pay, by no later 23 than 3:00 P.M. (New York time) on the Effective Date, in immediately available funds, to the account designated by the Company, an amount equal to the lesser of (x) such Non-Defaulting Bank Investor's proportionate share (based upon the relative Commitments of the Non-Defaulting Bank Investors) of the Assignment Amount Deficit and (y) its unused Commitment. A Defaulting Bank Investor shall forthwith, upon demand, pay to the Agent for the ratable benefit of the Non-Defaulting Bank Investors all amounts paid by each Non-Defaulting Bank Investor on behalf of such Defaulting Bank Investor, together with interest thereon for each day from the date a payment was made by a Non-Defaulting Bank Investor until the date such Non-Defaulting Bank Investor has been paid such amounts in full at a rate per annum equal to the rate determined in accordance with clause (i) of the definition of "Base Rate" plus two percent (2%). In addition, if, after giving effect to the provisions of the immediately preceding sentence, any Assignment Amount Deficit continues to exist, each such Defaulting Bank Investor shall pay interest to the Agent on such Defaulting Bank Investor's portion of such remaining Assignment Amount Deficit, at a rate per annum equal to the rate determined in accordance with clause (i) of the definition of "Base Rate" plus two percent (2%), for each day from the Effective Date until the date such Defaulting Bank Investor shall pay its portion of such remaining Assignment Amount Deficit in full to the Company. Upon any assignment by the Company to the Bank Investors contemplated hereunder, the Company shall cease to make any additional advances to the Issuer hereunder. (b) ASSIGNMENT BY A BANK INVESTOR. (i) No Bank Investor may assign all or any portion of its Commitment or interest in the Note and the Net Investment and its rights and obligations hereunder to any Person unless approved in writing by the Issuer (which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld), the Administrative Agent, on behalf of the Company, and the Agent. In connection with any such assignment by a Bank Investor to another Person, the assignor shall deliver to the assignee an Assignment and Assumption Agreement, duly executed, assigning to such assignee all or any portion of (A) such assignor's Commitment and other obligations hereunder and (B) such assignor's pro rata interest in the Note and Net Investment and other rights hereunder, and such assignor shall promptly execute and deliver all further instruments and documents, and take all further action, that the assignee may reasonably request, in order to protect, or more fully evidence the assignee's right, title and interest in and to such interest and to enable the Agent, on behalf of such assignee, to exercise or enforce any rights hereunder and under the other Transaction Documents to which such assignor is or, immediately prior to such assignment, was a party. Upon any such assignment, (i) the assignee shall have all of the rights and obligations of the assignor hereunder and under the other Transaction Documents to which such assignor is or, immediately prior to such assignment, was a party with respect to such assignor's Commitment and interest in the Note and Net Investment for all purposes of this Agreement and under the other Transaction Documents to which such assignor is or, immediately prior to such assignment, was a party and (ii) the assignor shall have no further obligations with respect to the portion of its Commitment hereunder which has been assigned and shall relinquish its rights with respect to the portion of its interest in the Note and the Net Investment which has been assigned for all purposes of this Agreement and under the other Transaction Documents to which such assignor is or, immediately prior to such assignment, was a party. No such assignment shall be effective unless a fully executed copy of the related Assignment and Assumption Agreement shall be delivered to the Agent and the Issuer. All costs 24 and expenses of the Agent incurred in connection with any assignment hereunder shall be borne by the Issuer. No Bank Investor shall enter into any Assignment and Assumption Agreement hereunder without also simultaneously assigning an equal portion of its interest in the Liquidity Provider Agreement. (ii) By executing and delivering an Assignment and Assumption Agreement, the assignor and assignee thereunder confirm to and agree with each other and the other parties hereto as follows: (i) other than as provided in such Assignment and Assumption Agreement, the assignor makes no representation or warranty and assumes no responsibility with respect to any statements, warranties or representations made in or in connection with this Agreement, the other Transaction Documents or any other instrument or document furnished pursuant hereto or thereto or the execution, legality, validity, enforceability, genuineness, sufficiency or value or this Agreement, the other Transaction Documents or any such other instrument or document; (ii) the assignor makes no representation or warranty and assumes no responsibility with respect to the financial condition of the Issuer, AmeriCredit, AFC II or the Collection Agent or the performance or observance by the Issuer, AmeriCredit, AFC II or the Collection Agent of any of their respective obligations under this Agreement, the Master Receivables Purchase Agreement, the other Transaction Documents or any other instrument or document furnished pursuant hereto; (iii) such assignee confirms that it has received a copy of this Agreement, the Master Receivables Purchase Agreement, and such other instruments, documents and information as it has deemed appropriate to make its own credit analysis and decision to enter into such Assignment and Assumption Agreement and to purchase such interest; (iv) such assignee will, independently and without reliance upon the Agent, or any of its Affiliates, or the assignor and based on such agreements, documents and information as it shall deem appropriate at the time, continue to make its own credit decisions in taking or not taking action under this Agreement and the other Transaction Documents; (v) such assignee appoints and authorizes the Agent to take such action as agent on its behalf and to exercise such powers under this Agreement, the other Transaction Documents and any other instrument or document furnished pursuant hereto or thereto as are delegated to the Agent by the terms hereof or thereof, together with such powers as are reasonably incidental thereto and to enforce its respective rights and interests in and under this Agreement, the other Transaction Documents, the Receivables, the Contracts and the Related Security; (vi) such assignee agrees that it will perform in accordance with their terms all of the obligations which by the terms of this Agreement and the other Transaction Documents are required to be performed by it as the assignee of the assignor; and (vii) such assignee agrees that it will not institute against the Company or any Conduit Assignee any proceeding of the type referred to in Section 6.9 prior to the date which is one year and one day after the payment in full of all Commercial Paper issued by the Company or any Conduit Assignee. (c) ISSUER'S OBLIGATION TO PAY CERTAIN AMOUNTS; ADDITIONAL ASSIGNMENT AMOUNT. The Issuer shall pay to the Agent, for the account of the Company, in connection with any assignment by the Company to the Bank Investors pursuant to Section 5.9(a), an aggregate amount equal to all Discount to accrue through the end of each outstanding funding period plus all other Aggregate Unpaids (other than the Net Investment). If the Issuer fails to make payment of such amounts at or prior to the time of assignment by the Company to the Bank Investors, such amount shall be paid by the Bank Investors (in accordance with their respective Pro Rata Shares) to the Company as additional consideration for the interests assigned 25 to the Bank Investors and the amount of the "Net Investment" hereunder held by the Bank Investors shall be increased by an amount equal to the additional amount so paid by the Bank Investors. (d) ADMINISTRATION OF AGREEMENT AFTER ASSIGNMENT BY COMPANY TO BANK INVESTORS. After any assignment by the Company to the Bank Investors pursuant to Section 5.9(a) (and the payment of all amounts owing to the Company in connection therewith), all rights of the Administrative Agent and the Collateral Agent set forth herein shall be deemed to be afforded to the Agent on behalf of the Bank Investors instead of either such party. (e) PAYMENTS AFTER ASSIGNMENT BY COMPANY TO BANK INVESTORS. After any assignment by the Company to the Bank Investors pursuant to Section 5.9(a), all payments to be made hereunder by the Issuer to the Company shall be made to the Agent's account as such account shall have been notified to the Issuer. In the event that the aggregate of the Assignment Amounts paid by the Bank Investors pursuant to Section 5.9(a) is less than the Net Investment of the Company on the date of such assignment, then to the extent payments made hereunder in respect of the Net Investment exceed the aggregate of the Assignment Amounts, such excess shall be remitted by the Agent to the Company. (f) DOWNGRADE OF BANK INVESTOR. If at any time prior to any assignment by the Company to the Bank Investors as contemplated pursuant to Section 5.9(a), the short term debt rating of any Bank Investor shall be "A-2" or "P-2" from Standard & Poor's or Moody's, respectively, with negative credit implications, such Bank Investor, upon request of the Agent, shall, within 30 days of such request, assign its rights and obligations hereunder to another financial institution (which institution's short term debt shall be rated at least "A-2" and "P-2" from Standard & Poor's and Moody's, respectively, and which shall not be so rated with negative credit implications and which is acceptable to the Company and the Agent). If the short term debt rating of a Bank Investor shall be "A-3" or "P-3", or lower, from Standard & Poor's or Moody's, respectively (or such rating shall have been withdrawn by Standard & Poor's or Moody's), such Bank Investor, upon request of the Agent, shall, within five (5) Business Days of such request, assign its rights and obligations hereunder to another financial institution (which institution's short term debt shall be rated at least "A-2" and "P-2" from Standard & Poor's and Moody's, respectively, and which shall not be so rated with negative credit implications and which is acceptable to the Company and the Agent). In either such case, if any such Bank Investor shall not have assigned its rights and obligations under this Agreement within the applicable time period described above, the Company shall have the right to require such Bank Investor to pay to the Agent an amount equal to such Bank Investor's Commitment for deposit by the Agent into an account, in the name of the Agent, which shall be in satisfaction of such Bank Investor's obligations to make Subsequent Fundings and to pay its Assignment Amount upon an assignment from the Company in accordance with Section 5.9(a) hereof. The amount on deposit in such account shall be invested by the Agent in Eligible Investments and such Eligible Investments shall be selected by the Agent in its sole discretion. The Agent shall remit to such Bank Investor, monthly, the income thereon. Nothing in the three preceding sentences shall affect or diminish in any way any such downgraded Bank Investor's Commitment to the Issuer or the Company or such downgraded Bank Investor's other obligations and liabilities hereunder and under the other Transaction Documents. 26 ARTICLE VI MISCELLANEOUS Section 6.1. TERM OF AGREEMENT. This Agreement shall terminate on the date following the Termination Date upon which the Net Investment has been reduced to zero, all accrued Discount and Servicing Fees have been paid in full and all other Aggregate Unpaids have been paid in full, in each case, in cash; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, that (i) the rights and remedies of the Agent, the Company, the Bank Investors and the Administrative Agent with respect to any representation and warranty made or deemed to be made by the Issuer pursuant to this Agreement, (ii) the indemnification and payment provisions of Article IV, and (iii) the agreement set forth in Section 6.9 hereof, shall be continuing and shall survive any termination of this Agreement. Section 6.2. WAIVERS; AMENDMENTS. (a) No failure or delay on the part of the Agent, the Company, the Administrative Agent or any Bank Investor in exercising any power, right or remedy under this Agreement shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any such power, right or remedy preclude any other further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other power, right or remedy. The rights and remedies herein provided shall be cumulative and nonexclusive of any rights or remedies provided by law. (b) Any provision of this Agreement or any other Transaction Document may be amended or waived if, but only if, such amendment or waiver is in writing and is signed by the Issuer, the Collection Agent, the Company and the Majority Investors (and, if Article V or the rights or duties of the Agent are affected thereby, by the Agent); PROVIDED that no such amendment or waiver shall, unless signed by each Bank Investor directly affected thereby, (i) increase the Commitment of a Bank Investor, (ii) reduce the Net Investment or rate of interest to accrue thereon or any fees or other amounts payable hereunder, (iii) postpone any date fixed for the payment of any scheduled distribution in respect of the Net Investment or interest with respect thereto or any fees or other amounts payable hereunder or for termination of any Commitment, (iv) change the percentage of the Commitments of Bank Investors which shall be required for the Bank Investors or any of them to take any action under this section or any other provision of this Agreement, (v) release all or substantially all of the property with respect to which a security or ownership interest therein has been granted hereunder to the Agent or the Bank Investors or (vi) extend or permit the extension of the Commitment Termination Date. In the event the Agent requests the Company's or a Bank Investor's consent pursuant to the foregoing provisions and the Agent does not receive a consent (either positive or negative) from the Company or such Bank Investor within 10 Business Days of the Company's or Bank Investor's receipt of such request, then the Company or such Bank Investor (and its percentage interest hereunder) shall be disregarded in determining whether the Agent shall have obtained sufficient consent hereunder. Section 6.3. NOTICES. Except as provided below, all communications and notices provided for hereunder shall be in writing (including telecopy or electronic facsimile transmission or similar writing) and shall be given to the other party at its address or telecopy 27 number set forth below or at such other address or telecopy number as such party may hereafter specify for the purposes of notice to such party.

However, anything in this Section 6.3 to the contrary notwithstanding, the Issuer hereby authorizes the Company to effect Subsequent Fundings, funding period and interest rate selections based on telephonic notices made by any Person which the Company in good faith believes to be acting on behalf of the Issuer. The Issuer agrees to deliver promptly to the Company a written confirmation of each telephonic notice signed by an authorized officer of Issuer. However, the absence of such confirmation shall not affect the validity of such notice. If the written confirmation differs in any material respect from the action taken by the Company, the records of the Company shall govern absent manifest error.

No provision of this Agreement shall in any manner restrict the ability of the Company or any Bank Investor to assign, participate, grant security interests in, or otherwise transfer any portion of the Note. (b) Without limiting the foregoing, the Company may, from time to time, with prior or concurrent notice to the Issuer and the Collection Agent, in one transaction or a series of transactions, assign all or a portion of the Note and 30 the Net Investment and its rights and obligations under this Agreement and any other Transaction Documents to which it is a party to a Conduit Assignee. Upon and to the extent of such assignment by the Company to a Conduit Assignee, (i) such Conduit Assignee shall be the owner of the assigned portion of the Note and the Net Investment, (ii) the related administrative agent for such Conduit Assignee will act as the Administrative Agent for such Conduit Assignee, with all corresponding rights and powers, express or implied, granted to the Administrative Agent hereunder or under the other Transaction Documents, (iii) such Conduit Assignee and its liquidity support provider(s) and credit support provider(s) and other related parties shall have the benefit of all the rights and protections provided to the Company and its Liquidity Provider(s) and Credit Support Provider(s), respectively, herein and in the other Transaction Documents (including, without limitation, any limitation on recourse against such Conduit Assignee or related parties, any agreement not to file or join in the filing of a petition to commence an insolvency proceeding against such Conduit Assignee, and the right to assign to another Conduit Assignee as provided in this paragraph), (iv) such Conduit Assignee shall assume all (or the assigned or assumed portion) of the Company's obligations, if any, hereunder or any other Transaction Document, and the Company shall be released from such obligations, in each case to the extent of such assignment, and the obligations of the Company and such Conduit Assignee shall be several and not joint, (v) all distributions in respect of the Net Investment shall be made to the applicable agent or administrative agent, as applicable, on behalf of the Company and such Conduit Assignee on a pro rata basis according to their respective interests, (vi) the definition of the term "CP Rate" with respect to the portion of the Net Investment funded with commercial paper issued by the Company from time to time shall be determined in the manner set forth in the definition of "CP Rate" applicable to the Company on the basis of the interest rate or discount applicable to commercial paper issued by such Conduit Assignee (rather than the Company), (vii) the defined terms and other terms and provisions of this Agreement and the other Transaction Documents shall be interpreted in accordance with the foregoing, and (viii) if requested by the Agent or administrative agent with respect to the Conduit Assignee, the parties will execute and deliver such further agreements and documents and take such other actions as the Agent or such administrative agent may reasonably request to evidence and give effect to the foregoing.

Section 6.13. INTENDED TAX CHARACTERIZATION. The parties hereto agree that it is their mutual intent that, for all applicable tax purposes, the Note will constitute indebtedness and that for all applicable tax purposes, accordingly, the Issuer will be treated as owner of the Collateral.
