          AFS or ACC, as the case may be, named as the original secured party
          under such Receivable and, accordingly, AFS or ACC, as the case may
          be, will be the holder of a first priority security interest in such
          Financed Vehicle. With respect to each Receivable for which the Lien
          Certificate has not yet been returned from the Registrar of Titles,
          AFS or ACC, as the case may be, has received written evidence from the
          related Dealer or the Obligor that such Lien Certificate showing such
          Seller as first lienholder has been applied for. If the Receivable was
          originated in a state in which a filing or recording is required of
          the secured party to perfect a security interest in motor vehicles,
          such filings or recordings have been duly made to show AFS or ACC, as
          the case may be, named as the original secured party under the related
          Receivable;

               (z)  which is not a Defaulted Receivable;

               (aa) which is not a Delinquent Receivable;

               (bb) which is not secured by vehicles which are financed
          repossessions; and

               (cc) which was originated in the United States of America and, at
          the time of origination, materially conformed to all requirements of
          the Servicing Procedures and Credit Manual applicable to such
          Receivable.

          For purposes of this Agreement (including the computation from time to
          time of 

 
                                                                         Page 18
 
the Borrowing Base), the eligibility of Receivables will be determined from time

eligibility requirements).

warranty by the Borrower to the Agent and the Lenders that, on the requested
date of such

 
                                                                         Page 37

Advance, (a) the representations and warranties contained in Article X will be

true and correct as of such date as though made on such date, (b) no Facility
Termination Event or Unmatured Facility Termination Event has occurred and is
continuing or will result from the making of such Advance, and (c) after giving
effect to such requested Advance, the aggregate principal balance of the
outstanding Advances hereunder will not exceed the lesser of the Facility Limit
and the Borrowing Base.

     SECTION 2.5  Voluntary Termination of Facility; Reduction and Increase of
                  ------------------------------------------------------------
Facility Limit.
--------------

     (a)  At any time the Borrower may, upon at least five Business Days' prior
written notice to the Agent, terminate in whole or reduce the Total Commitment.
Upon any termination in whole of the Total Commitment, the Facility Limit and
the Maximum Purchase Amount of each Noncommitted Lender shall be reduced to
zero. Each partial reduction shall be in an aggregate amount of $5,000,000 or
integral multiples of $1,000,000 in excess thereof. Partial reductions of the
Total Commitment pursuant to this Section 2.5(a) shall be allocated to the
                                  --------------
Commitment of each Committed Lender (thus reducing the Maximum Purchase Amount
of each Noncommitted Lender and the Facility Limit) pro rata based on the
                                                    --- ----
Commitment Percentage represented by such Commitment. Any termination or
reduction of the Total Commitment shall require (i) in the event of a partial
reduction and after giving effect to any such partial reduction and any prior
partial reduction, that the remaining Facility Limit be not less than
$50,000,000, and (ii) in connection therewith that the Borrower comply with
Section 3.2(b), Section 4.l(b) and Section 6.3. The Agent shall promptly provide
--------------  --------------     -----------
copies of any such notice of termination or reduction received by it to each
Lender together with a computation of the amount by which its Commitment (if
any) has been reduced.

     (b)  The Total Commitment (and Maximum Purchase Amounts and Facility Limit)
may be increased from time to time by (i) the increase of the Commitment of one
or more Committed Lenders (by amendment of its Joinder Supplement), (ii) the
addition of one or more Committed Lenders (by execution and delivery of
appropriate Joinder Supplements) or (iii) the addition of one or more
Noncommitted Lenders concurrently with the addition of one or more Committed
Lenders for such Noncommitted Lenders (by execution and delivery of appropriate
Joinder Supplements); provided, however, that no such increase shall become
                      --------  -------
effective unless (i) the Agent, AFS, the related Noncommitted Lender (in the
case of actions described in (i) and (ii) affecting its Committed Lenders) and
the Borrower shall have given their written consent thereto, and (ii) such
conditions, if any, as the Agent shall have required in connection with its
consent shall have been satisfied. Notwithstanding the foregoing, at no time may
the Facility Limit exceed $300,000,000.

     SECTION 2.6  Note.  All Advances shall be evidenced by a Note, with
                  ----
appropriate insertions, payable to the order of the Agent, on behalf of the
Investors. The Borrower hereby irrevocably authorizes the Agent to make (or
cause to be made) appropriate

 
                                                                         Page 38

notations on the grid attached to the Note (or on any continuation of such grid,
or at the Agent's option, in its records), which notations, if made, shall
evidence, inter alia, the date of, the outstanding principal of, and the yield
          ----- ----
rate(s) and Fixed Period(s) applicable to the Advances evidenced thereby. Such
notations shall be rebuttably presumptive evidence of the subject matter thereof
absent manifest error; provided, however, that the failure to make any such
                       --------  -------
notations shall not limit or otherwise affect any of the Obligations.

                               YIELD, FEES, ETC.

     SECTION 3.1  Yield. The Borrower hereby promises to pay Yield on the unpaid
                  -----
principal amount of each Advance (or each portion thereof) for the period
commencing on the date of such Advance until such Advance is paid in full. No
provision of this Agreement or the Note shall require the payment or permit the
collection of Yield in excess of the maximum permitted by applicable law.

     SECTION 3.2  Yield Payment Dates. Yield accrued on each Advance shall be
                  -------------------
payable, without duplication:

          (a)  on the Facility Termination Date;

          (b)  on the date of any payment or prepayment, in whole or in part, of
     principal outstanding on such Advance; and

          (c)  on each Distribution Date; provided that Yield relating to such
                                          --------
     Advance may be payable, at the option of the Agent or the Borrower, on the
     related Interim Distribution Date.

     SECTION 3.3  Yield Allocations; Selection of Fixed Periods, etc.
                  --------------------------------------------------

     (a)  The Agent, from time to time in its sole discretion exercised in good
faith, shall determine after consultation with each Noncommitted Lender whether
Yield in respect of the Advances then outstanding, or any portion thereof, shall
be calculated by reference to such Lender's Commercial Paper Rate (such portion
being herein called a "CP Allocation") or the Bank Rate (such portion being
                       -------------
herein called a "Bank Rate Allocation", and together with a CP Allocation
                 --------------------
individually called an "Allocation", and collectively, "Allocations"); provided,
                        ----------                      -----------    --------
however, that the Agent may determine, at any time and in its sole discretion
-------
exercised in good faith, that the Commercial Paper Rate is unavailable or
otherwise not desirable, in which case the Advances will be allocated to a Bank
Rate Allocation (unless the Default Rate is in effect). The Agent shall provide
the Borrower with reasonably prompt notice of the Allocations made by it
pursuant to this Section 3.3(a).
                 --------------

 
                                                                         Page 39

     (b)  The Agent, in its sole discretion exercised in good faith after
consultation with each Noncommitted Lender and the Borrower, shall select the
duration of the initial and each subsequent Fixed Period relating to each
Advance, provided that any Fixed Period selected by the Agent applicable to an
Advance owing to a Noncommitted Lender shall have been approved (in writing or
by telephone promptly confirmed in writing) by such Lender. In selecting such
Fixed Period, the Agent shall use reasonable efforts, taking into consideration
market conditions, to accommodate the Borrower's preferences; provided, however,
                                                              --------  -------
that the Agent shall have the ultimate authority to make all such selections.
Unless consented to or directed by the Agent, the aggregate number of Fixed
Periods for all Advances outstanding at any one time hereunder shall not exceed
25, it being understood that if necessary to match the funding requirement of a
Noncommitted Lender, any Advance may be divided into portions having different
Fixed Periods.

     SECTION 3.4  Fees. The Borrower agrees to pay to the Agent, on behalf of
                  ----
itself, the Lenders and the Liquidity Providers, certain fees in the amounts and
on the dates set forth in the letter agreement among CSFB, AFS and the Borrower
dated as of the date hereof (as the same may be amended, supplemented or
otherwise modified, the "Fee Letter").
                         ----------

     SECTION 3.5  Computation of Yield and Fees. All Yield and Fees shall be
                  -----------------------------
computed on the basis of the actual number of days (including the first day but
excluding the last day) occurring during the period for which such Yield or Fee
is payable over a year comprised of 360 days (or, in the case of Yield on an
Advance bearing Yield at the Alternate Base Rate, 365 days or, if appropriate,
366 days).

     SECTION 4.1  Repayments and Prepayments. The Borrower shall repay in full

Prior thereto, the Borrower:

          (a)  may, from time to time on any Business Day, make a prepayment, in
     whole or in part, of the outstanding principal amount of any Advance;
     provided, however, that
     --------  -------

                    (i)  all such voluntary prepayments shall require at least
          two but no more than five Business Days' prior written notice to the
          Agent; and

                    (ii) all such voluntary partial prepayments shall be in a
          minimum amount of $1,000,000 and an integral multiple of $500,000;

 
                                                                         Page 40

          (b)  shall, on each date when any reduction in the Facility Limit
     shall become effective pursuant to Section 2.5, make a prepayment of the
                                        -----------
     Advances in an amount equal to the excess, if any, of the aggregate
     outstanding principal amount of the Advances over the Facility Limit as so
     reduced;

          (c)  shall, immediately upon any acceleration of the maturity date of
     the Advances pursuant to Section 14.2, repay all Advances in full, unless,
                              ------------
     pursuant to Section 14.2(a), only a portion of all Advances is so
                 ---------------
     accelerated, in which event the Borrower shall repay the accelerated
     portion of the Advances;

          (d)  shall, on the date the Borrower receives any proceeds from any
     Take-Out Securitization (after deducting all costs and expenses of such
     Take-Out Securitization), make a prepayment of the Advances in an amount
     substantially equal to such net proceeds or, if less, the total outstanding
     amount of Advances; and

          (e)  shall prepay the Advances in full (in the manner set forth in
     Section 4.1(a)) in order to comply with the Clean-Up Requirement during
     ---------------
     each Clean-Up Period.

     Each such prepayment or payment shall be subject to the payment of any
amounts required by Section 6.3 resulting from a prepayment or payment of an
                    -----------                                             
Advance prior to the end of the Fixed Period with respect thereto.

     SECTION 6.1.  Increased Costs.
                   --------------- 

     (a)    If due to the introduction of or any change in or in the
interpretation of any law or regulation occurring or issued after the date
hereof, the Agent, any Lender or other Investor, any Liquidity Provider, or any
of their respective Affiliates (each an "Affected Person") determines that
                                         ---------------
compliance with any law or regulation or any guideline or request from any
central bank or other Official Body (whether or not having 

 
                                                                         Page 43

the force of law) affects or would affect the amount of capital required or
expected to be maintained by such Affected Person and such Affected Person
determines that the amount of such capital is increased by or based upon the
existence of its obligations or commitments hereunder or with respect hereto or
to the funding thereof and other obligations or commitments of the same type,
then, upon demand by such Affected Person (with a copy to the Agent) (which
----
demand shall be accompanied by a statement setting forth the basis for the
calculations of the amount being claimed), the Borrower shall immediately pay to
the Agent, for the account of such Affected Person (as a third-party
beneficiary), from time to time as specified by such Affected Person, additional
amounts sufficient to compensate such Affected Person in the light of such
circumstances, to the extent that such Affected Person reasonably determines
such increase in capital to be allocable to the existence of any of such
obligations, commitments or fundings. Such written statement shall, in the
absence of manifest error, be rebuttably presumptive evidence of the subject
matter thereof. Any Affected Person claiming any additional amounts payable
pursuant to this Section 6.1(a) agrees to use reasonable efforts (consistent
                 -------------   
with legal and regulatory restrictions) to designate a different office or
branch of such Affected Person as its lending office if the making of such a
designation would avoid the need for, or reduce the amount of, any such
additional amounts and would not, in the reasonable judgment of such Affected
Person, be otherwise disadvantageous to such Affected Person.


     (b)  If, due to either (i) the introduction of or any change (other than
any change by way of imposition or increase of reserve requirements referred to
in Section 6.2) in or in the interpretation of any law or regulation or (ii)
   -----------  
compliance with any guideline or request from any central bank or other Official
Body (whether or not having the force of law) issued after the date hereof,
there shall be any increase in the cost to a Lender of agreeing to make Advances
in respect of which Yield is computed by reference to the Eurodollar Rate, then,
                                                                           ----
upon demand by such Lender (with a copy to the Agent) (which demand shall be
accompanied by a statement setting forth the basis for the amount being
claimed), the Borrower shall immediately pay to the Agent, for the account of
such Lender (as a third-party beneficiary), from time to time as specified by
such Lender, additional amounts sufficient to compensate such Lender for such
increased costs. Such written statement shall, in the absence of manifest error,
be rebuttably presumptive evidence of the subject matter thereof. Any Affected
Person claiming any additional amounts payable pursuant to this Section 6.1(b)
                                                                ------------- 
agrees to use reasonable efforts (consistent with legal and regulatory
restrictions) to designate a different office or branch of such Affected Person
as its lending office if the making of such a designation would avoid the need
for, or reduce the amount of, any such additional amounts and would not, in the
reasonable judgment of such Affected Person, be otherwise disadvantageous to
such Affected Person.

     SECTION 6.2 Additional Yield on Advances Bearing a Eurodollar Rate. The
                 ------------------------------------------------------   
Borrower shall pay to any Lender, so long as such Lender shall be required under
regulations of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System to maintain

 
                                                                         Page 44

          reserves with respect to liabilities or assets consisting of or
          including Eurocurrency liabilities, additional Yield on the unpaid
          Advances of such Lender during each Fixed Period in respect of which
          Yield is computed by reference to the Eurodollar Rate, for such Fixed
          Period, at a rate per annum equal at all times during such Fixed
          Period to the remainder obtained by subtracting (i) the Eurodollar
          Rate for such Fixed Period from (ii) the rate obtained by dividing
          such Eurodollar Rate referred to in clause (i) above by that
          percentage equal to 100% minus the Eurodollar Rate Reserve Percentage
                                   -----
          of such Lender for such Fixed Period, payable on each date on which
          Yield is payable on such Advances.  Such additional Yield shall be
          determined by such Lender and notice thereof (accompanied by a
          statement setting forth the basis for the amount being claimed) given
          to the Borrower through the Agent within 30 days after any Yield
          payment is made with respect to which such additional Yield is
          requested.  Such written statement shall, in the absence of manifest
          error, be rebuttably presumptive evidence of the subject matter
          thereof.  Any Affected Person claiming any additional amounts payable
          pursuant to this Section 6.2 agrees to use reasonable efforts
                           -----------
          (consistent with legal and regulatory restrictions) to designate a
          different office or branch of such Affected Person as its lending
          office if the making of such a designation would avoid the need for,
          or reduce the amount of, any such additional amounts and would not, in
          the reasonable judgment of such Affected Person, be otherwise
          disadvantageous to such Affected Person.


     SECTION 6.3  Funding Losses. The Borrower hereby agrees that upon demand by
                  --------------  
any Affected Person (which demand shall be accompanied by a statement setting
forth the basis for the calculations of the amount being claimed) the Borrower
will indemnify such Affected Person against any net loss or expense which such
Affected Person may sustain or incur (including, without limitation, any net
loss or expense incurred by reason of or resulting from interest to accrue on
the related commercial paper after the date of any failed borrowing, payment or
prepayment of an Advance or from the liquidation or reemployment of deposits or
other funds acquired by such Affected Person to fund or maintain any Advance to
the Borrower), as reasonably determined by such Affected Person, as a result of
any failure to borrow an Advance on the date specified therefor in an Advance
Request (other than due to a default by a Lender) or as a result of any payment
or prepayment (including any mandatory prepayment) of any Advance on a date
other than the last day of the Fixed Period for such Advance. Such written
statement shall, in the absence of manifest error, be rebuttably presumptive
evidence of the subject matter thereof.

     SECTION 6.4  Replacement of Affected Person. Upon the receipt by the
Borrower of a claim for reimbursement or compensation under Section 6.1 or 6.2
                                                            ------------------
hereof by an Affected Person, if payment thereof shall not be waived by such
Affected Person, the Borrower may (a) request such Affected Person or the Lender
that has assigned an interest in its Advances to such Affected Person to use
reasonable efforts to assist the Borrower in its attempt to obtain a replacement
bank, financial institution or Structured Lender, as applicable, satisfactory to
the Borrower (in the case of a replacement

 
                                                                         Page 45

                                                  ------------------
request one or more of the other Lenders or Investors to acquire and assume all
or a part of such Affected Person's commitment to make Advances, Advances or
interests therein. Upon notice from the Borrower, such Affected Person shall, or
the Lender that has assigned an interest in its Advances to such Affected Person
shall cause such Affected Person to, assign, without recourse, its commitment to
make Advances, Advances or interests therein and its other rights and
obligations (if any) hereunder, or a ratable share thereof, to the Replacement
Person or Replacement Persons designated by the Borrower and consented to by the
Agent for a purchase price equal to the sum of the principal amount of the
Advances or interests therein so assigned, all accrued and unpaid Yield thereon
and any other amounts (including Fees and any amounts owing under this Article 
                                                                       -------

Borrower shall provide such Affected Person with an Officer's Certificate
stating that such Replacement Person has advised the Borrower that it is not
subject to, or has agreed not to seek, such increased amount.

                  ADMINISTRATION AND SERVICING OF RECEIVABLES

     SECTION 81. Duties of the Servicer. (a) The Servicer is hereby authorized
                 ----------------------
to act for the Borrower and in such capacity shall manage, service, administer
and make collections on the Transferred Receivables, and perform the other
actions required by the Servicer under this Agreement for the benefit of the
Investors and other Secured Parties. The Servicer agrees that its servicing of
the Transferred Receivables shall be carried out in accordance with customary
and usual procedures of institutions which service motor vehicle retail
installment sales contracts and, to the extent more exacting, 

 
                                                                         Page 49

the degree of skill and attention that the Servicer exercises from time to time
with respect to all comparable motor vehicle receivables that it services for
itself or others in accordance with AFS's Servicing Procedures and Credit Manual
as in effect from time to time for servicing all its other comparable motor
vehicle receivables. The Servicer's duties shall include, without limitation,
collection and posting of all payments, responding to inquiries of Obligors on
the Transferred Receivables, investigating delinquencies, sending payment
statements or payment books to Obligors, reporting any required tax information
to Obligors, policing the collateral, complying with the terms of the Lockbox
Agreement, accounting for collections and furnishing monthly and annual
statements to the Agent and the Collateral Agent with respect to distributions,
monitoring the status of Insurance Policies with respect to the Financed
Vehicles and performing the other duties specified herein. The Servicer shall
also administer and enforce all rights and responsibilities of the holder of the
Transferred Receivables provided for in the Dealer Agreements (and shall
maintain possession of the Dealer Agreements, to the extent it is necessary to
do so), the Dealer Assignments and the Insurance Policies, to the extent that
such Dealer Agreements, Dealer Assignments and Insurance Policies relate to the
Transferred Receivables, the related Financed Vehicles or the related Obligors.

     (b)  To the extent consistent with the standards, policies and procedures
otherwise required hereby, the Servicer shall follow its customary standards,
policies, and procedures with respect to the Transferred Receivables and shall
have full power and authority, acting alone, to do any and all things in
connection with such managing, servicing, administration and collection that it
may deem necessary or desirable. Without limiting the generality of the
foregoing, the Servicer is hereby authorized and empowered by the Borrower to
execute and deliver, on behalf of the Borrower, any and all instruments of
satisfaction or cancellation, or of partial or full release or discharge, and
all other comparable instruments, with respect to the Transferred Receivables
and with respect to the related Financed Vehicles. The Servicer is authorized to
release Liens on Financed Vehicles in order to collect insurance proceeds with
respect thereto and to liquidate such Financed Vehicles in accordance with its
customary standards, policies and procedures; provided, however, that
                                              --------  -------      
notwithstanding the foregoing, the Servicer shall not, except pursuant to an
order from a court of competent jurisdiction, release an Obligor from payment of
any unpaid amount under any Transferred Receivable or waive the right to collect
the unpaid balance of any Transferred Receivable from the Obligor, except that
the Servicer may forego collection efforts if the amount subject to collection
is de minimis and if it would forego collection in accordance with its customary
procedures.  The Servicer is hereby authorized to commence, in its own name or
in the name of the Borrower, the Collateral Agent or the Lenders (provided that
                                                                  --------     
if the Servicer is acting in the name of the Collateral Agent or the Lenders,
the Servicer shall have obtained the Collateral Agent's and the Agent's consent,
as the case may be, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld), a legal
proceeding to enforce a Transferred Receivable pursuant to Section 8.3 or to
                                                           -----------      
commence or participate in any other legal proceeding (including, without
limitation, a 

 
                                                                         Page 50

bankruptcy proceeding) relating to or involving a Transferred Receivable, an
Obligor or a Financed Vehicle. If the Servicer commences or participates in such
a legal proceeding in its own name, the Borrower or the Collateral Agent (on
behalf of the Secured Parties), as the case may be, shall thereupon be deemed to
have automatically assigned such Transferred Receivable to the Servicer solely
for purposes of commencing or participating in any such proceeding as a party or
claimant, and the Servicer is authorized and empowered by the Borrower or the
Collateral Agent (on behalf of the Secured Parties), as the case may be, to
execute and deliver in the Servicer's name any notices, demands, claims,
complaints, responses, affidavits or other documents or instruments in
connection with any such proceeding. The Borrower and the Collateral Agent (on
behalf of the Secured Parties), as the case may be, shall furnish the Servicer
with any powers of attorney and other documents which the Servicer may
reasonably request in writing and which the Servicer deems necessary or
appropriate and take any other steps which the Servicer may deem necessary or
appropriate to enable the Servicer to carry out its servicing and administrative
duties under this Agreement.

     (c)  The Servicer agrees to perform all duties and obligations of the
Borrower under the Transaction Documents, including, without limitation, the
obligations of the Borrower under this Agreement.

     SECTION 8.2.  Collection of Receivable Payments; Modification and Amendment
                   -------------------------------------------------------------
of Receivables; Lockbox Agreements.
----------------------------------

     (a)  Consistent with the standards, policies and procedures required by
this Agreement, the Servicer shall make reasonable efforts to collect all
payments called for under the terms and provisions of the Transferred
Receivables as and when the same shall become due, and shall follow such
collection procedures as it follows with respect to all comparable automobile
receivables that it services for itself or others and otherwise act with respect
to the Transferred Receivables, the Dealer Agreements, the Dealer Assignments
and the Insurance Policies in such manner as will, in the reasonable judgment of
the Servicer, maximize the amount to be received by the Borrower and the Secured
Parties with respect thereto. The Servicer is authorized in its discretion to
waive any prepayment charge, late payment charge or any other similar fees that
may be collected in the ordinary course of servicing any Transferred Receivable.

     (b)  The Servicer may at any time agree to a modification or amendment of a
Transferred Receivable in order to (i) change the Obligor's regular due date to
another date within the Collection Period in which such due date occurs, (ii) 
re-amortize the amount of the scheduled payments on the Transferred Receivable
following a partial prepayment of principal or (iii) convert a Pre-Computed
Receivable to a Simple Interest Receivable.

 
                                                                         Page 51

     (c)  The Servicer may grant payment extensions on, or other modifications
or amendments to, a Transferred Receivable (including those modifications
permitted by Section 8.2(b)) in accordance with its customary procedures if the
             ---------------  
Servicer believes in good faith that such extension, modification or amendment
is necessary to avoid a default on such Transferred Receivable, will maximize
the amount to be received by the Borrower and the Secured Parties with respect
to such Transferred Receivable, and is otherwise in the best interests of the
Borrower and the Secured Parties; provided, however, that:
                                  --------  -------

               (i)    in no event may a Transferred Receivable be extended more
          than twice during any twelve month period or more than six times
          during the full term of such Transferred Receivable;

               (ii)   the aggregate period of all extensions on a Receivable
          shall not exceed six months and any such extension shall not extend
          beyond 78 months after the Facility Termination Date; and

               (iii)  the Servicer shall not amend or modify a Transferred
          Receivable (except as provided in Section 8.2(b) and clause (i) and
                                            --------------
          (ii) of this Section 8.2(c)) without the written consent of the Agent.
                       --------------                                           

provided, that any such amendment, modification or extension shall be delivered
--------  ----                                                                 
by the Servicer to the Custodian promptly after execution thereof.

     (a)  The Servicer shall use its best efforts to cause Obligors to make all
payments on the Transferred Receivables, whether by check or by direct debit of
the Obligor's bank account, to be made directly to one or more Lockbox Banks,
acting as agent for the Collateral Agent (on behalf of the Secured Parties)
pursuant to a Lockbox Agreement. Amounts received by a Lockbox Bank in respect
of the Transferred Receivables may initially be deposited into an account (the
"Lockbox Account") maintained by the Lockbox Bank as agent for the Collateral
 ---------------    
Agent (on behalf of the Secured Parties) and for other owners of automobile
receivables serviced by the Servicer. The Servicer shall use its best efforts to
cause the Lockbox Bank, pursuant to the Lockbox Agreement, to deposit all
payments on the Transferred Receivables in the Lockbox Account no later than the
Business Day after receipt and shall transfer all amounts credited to the
Lockbox Account on account of such payments to the Collection Account, no later
than the second Business Day after receipt of such payments. The Lockbox Account
shall be a demand deposit account held by the Lockbox Bank, or at the request of
the Agent, an Eligible Account satisfying clause (i) of the definition thereof.

     Notwithstanding any Lockbox Agreement, or any of the provisions of this
Agreement relating to the Lockbox Agreement, the Servicer shall remain obligated
and liable to the Agent, the Collateral Agent and the Investors for servicing
and 

 
                                                                         Page 52

administering the Transferred Receivables in accordance with the provisions
of this Agreement without diminution of such obligation or liability by virtue
thereof.

          In the event the Servicer shall for any reason no longer be acting as
such, the Backup Servicer or successor Servicer shall thereupon assume all of
the rights and, from the date of assumption, all of the obligations of the
outgoing Servicer under the Lockbox Agreement, if applicable.  The Backup
Servicer or any other successor Servicer shall not be liable for any acts,
omissions or obligations of the Servicer prior to such succession.  In such
event, the successor Servicer shall be deemed to have assumed all of the
outgoing Servicer's interest therein and to have replaced the outgoing Servicer
as a party to each such Lockbox Agreement to the same extent as if such Lockbox
Agreement had been assigned to the successor Servicer, except that the outgoing
Servicer shall not thereby be relieved of any liability or obligations on the
part of the outgoing Servicer to the Lockbox Bank under such Lockbox Agreement.
The outgoing Servicer shall, upon request of the Agent, but at the expense of
the outgoing Servicer, deliver to the successor Servicer all documents and
records relating to each such agreement and an accounting of amounts collected
and held by the Lockbox Bank and otherwise use its best efforts to effect the
orderly and efficient transfer of any Lockbox Agreement to the successor
Servicer.  In the event that the Agent elects to change the identity of the
Lockbox Bank, the Servicer, at its expense, shall cause the Lockbox Bank to
deliver, at the direction of the Agent, to the Collateral Agent or a successor
Lockbox Bank all documents and records relating to the Transferred Receivables
and all amounts held (or thereafter received) by the Lockbox Bank (together with
an accounting of such amounts) and shall otherwise use its best efforts to
effect the orderly and efficient transfer of the lockbox arrangements and the
Servicer shall notify the Obligors to make payments to the Lockbox Account
established by the successor.

     (e)  The Servicer shall remit all payments by or on behalf of the Obligors
received directly by the Servicer to the Lockbox Account as soon as practicable,
but in no event later than the Business Day after receipt thereof.

     SECTION 8.3  Realization Upon Receivables.
                  ---------------------------- 

     (a)  Consistent with the standards, policies and procedures required by
this Agreement, the Servicer shall use its best efforts to repossess (or
otherwise comparably convert the ownership of) and liquidate any Financed
Vehicle securing a Transferred Receivable with respect to which the Servicer has
determined that payments thereunder are not likely to be resumed, as soon as is
practicable after default on such Transferred Receivable but in no event later
than the date on which all or any portion of a Scheduled Payment has become 91
or more days delinquent; provided, however, that the Servicer may elect not to
repossess a Financed Vehicle within such time period if in its good faith
judgment it determines that the proceeds ultimately recoverable with respect to
such Receivable would be increased by 

 
                                                                         Page 53

forbearance. The Servicer is authorized to follow such customary practices and
procedures as it shall deem necessary or advisable, consistent with the standard
of care required by Section 8.1, which practices and procedures may include
                    -----------
reasonable efforts to realize upon any recourse to Dealers, selling the related
Financed Vehicle at public or private sale, the submission of claims under an
Insurance Policy and other actions by the Servicer in order to realize upon such
Transferred Receivable. The foregoing is subject to the provision that, in any
case in which the Financed Vehicle shall have suffered damage, the Servicer
shall not expend funds in connection with any repair or towards the repossession
of such Financed Vehicle unless it shall determine in its discretion that such
repair and/or repossession shall increase the proceeds of liquidation of the
related Transferred Receivable by an amount greater than the amount of such
expenses. All Recoveries shall be remitted directly by the Servicer to the
Lockbox Account as soon as practicable, but in no event later than the Business
Day after receipt thereof. The Servicer shall be entitled to recover all
reasonable expenses incurred by it in the course of repossessing and liquidating
a Financed Vehicle, but only out of the cash proceeds of such Financed Vehicle,
any deficiency obtained from the Obligor or any amounts received from the
related Dealer, which amounts may be retained by the Servicer (and shall not be
required to be deposited in the Lockbox Account) to the extent of such expenses.
The Servicer shall pay on behalf of the Borrower any personal property taxes
assessed on repossessed Financed Vehicles; and the Servicer shall be entitled to
reimbursement of any such tax from Recoveries with respect to the related
Transferred Receivable.

     (b)  If the Servicer elects to commence a legal proceeding to enforce a
Dealer Agreement or Dealer Assignment, the act of commencement shall be deemed
to be an automatic assignment from the Borrower and the Collateral Agent (on
behalf of the Secured Parties) to the Servicer of the rights under such Dealer
Agreement and Dealer Assignment for purposes of collection only. If, however, in
any enforcement suit or legal proceeding, it is held that the Servicer may not
enforce a Dealer Agreement or Dealer Assignment on the grounds that it is not a
real party in interest or a Person entitled to enforce the Dealer Agreement or
Dealer Assignment, the Borrower, at the Servicer's expense, shall take such
steps as the Servicer deems necessary to enforce the Dealer Agreement or Dealer
Assignment, including bringing suit in its name. All amounts recovered shall be
remitted directly by the Servicer to the Lockbox Account as soon as practicable,
but in no event later than the Business Day after receipt thereof.

     SECTION 8.4  Insurance.
                  ---------   

     (a)  The Servicer shall monitor the status of the Insurance Policies in
accordance with its customary servicing procedures. If the Servicer shall
determine that an Obligor has failed to obtain or maintain a physical loss and
damage insurance policy covering the related Financed Vehicle which satisfies
the conditions set forth in clause (n) of the definition of "Eligible 
                            ----------                               
Receivable" (including during the repossession of such Financed Vehicle) the
Servicer shall enforce the rights of the holder of the

 
Receivable thereunder to require that the Obligor obtains such physical loss and
damage insurance.

     (b)  The initial Servicer may, in its reasonable discretion, if an Obligor
fails to obtain or maintain a physical loss and damage Insurance Policy, obtain
insurance with respect to the related Financed Vehicle and advance on behalf of
such Obligor, as required under the terms of the Insurance Policy, the premiums
for such insurance (such insurance being referred to herein as "Force-Placed
                                                                ------------ 
Insurance"). All policies of Force-Placed Insurance shall be endorsed with
---------
clauses providing for loss payable to the Collateral Agent. Any cost incurred by
the Servicer in maintaining such Force-Placed Insurance shall only be
recoverable out of premiums paid by the Obligors or Recoveries with respect to
the Transferred Receivable, as provided in paragraph (c) of this Section 8.4.
                                                                 -----------

     (c)  In connection with any Force-Placed Insurance obtained hereunder, the
Servicer may, in the manner and to the extent permitted by applicable law,
require the Obligors to repay the entire premium to the Servicer. In no event
shall the Servicer include the amount of the premium in the Amount Financed
under the Receivable. For all purposes of this Agreement, the Insurance Add-On
Amount with respect to any Receivable having Force-Placed Insurance will be
treated as a separate obligation of the Obligor and will not be added to the
Principal Balance of such Receivable, and amounts allocable thereto will not be
available in respect of the Obligations. The Servicer shall retain and
separately administer the right to receive payments from Obligors with respect
to Insurance Add-On Amounts or rebates of Force-Placed Insurance premiums. If an
Obligor makes a payment with respect to a Receivable having Force-Placed
Insurance, but the Servicer is unable to determine whether the payment is
allocable to the Receivable or to the Insurance Add-On Amount, the payment shall
be applied first to any unpaid Scheduled Payments and then to the Insurance Add-
On Amount. Recoveries on any Receivable will be used first to pay the Principal
Balance and accrued interest on such Receivable and then to pay the related
Insurance Add-On Amount. If an Obligor under a Receivable with respect to which
the Servicer has placed Force-Placed Insurance fails to make scheduled payments
of such Insurance Add-On Amount as due, and the Servicer has determined that
eventual payment of the Insurance Add-On Amount is unlikely, the Servicer may,
but shall not be required to, purchase such Receivable from the Borrower for the
Purchase Amount on any subsequent Distribution Date. Any such Receivable, and
any Receivable with respect to which the Servicer has placed Force-Placed
Insurance which has been paid in full (excluding any Insurance Add-On Amounts)
will be assigned by the Borrower to the Servicer.

     (d)  The Servicer may sue to enforce or collect upon the Insurance
Policies, in its own name, if possible, or as agent of the Borrower and the
Collateral Agent (on behalf of the Secured Parties). If the Servicer elects to
commence a legal proceeding to enforce an Insurance Policy, the act of
commencement shall be deemed to be an

 
                                                                        Page 55

 automatic assignment of the rights of the Borrower and the Collateral Agent (on
 behalf of the Secured Parties) under such Insurance Policy to the Servicer for
 purposes of collection only. If, however, in any enforcement suit or legal
 proceeding it is held that the Servicer may not enforce an Insurance Policy on
 the grounds that it is not a real party in interest or a holder entitled to
 enforce the Insurance Policy, the Borrower shall take such steps as the
 Servicer deems necessary to enforce such Insurance Policy, including bringing
 suit in its name.

     (e)     The Servicer may, in its reasonable discretion, maintain Collateral
 Insurance. If the Servicer elects not to maintain Collateral Insurance it will
 be obligated to indemnify the Borrower, and the Secured Parties against any
 losses arising from an Obligor's failure to maintain physical loss and damage
 insurance with respect to the related Financed Vehicle.

     SECTION 8.5 Maintenance of Security Interests in Financed Vehicles.
                 ------------------------------------------------------
     (a)     Consistent with its obligations under this Agreement, the Security
Agreement and the Custodian Agreement, the Servicer shall take such steps as are
necessary to maintain perfection of the security interest created by each
Transferred Receivable in the related Financed Vehicle on behalf of the Borrower
and the Collateral Agent for the benefit of the Secured Parties, including but
not limited to obtaining the execution by the Obligors and the recording,
registering, filing, re-recording, re-filing, and re-registering of all security
agreements, financing statements and continuation statements as are necessary to
maintain the security interest granted by the Obligors under the Transferred
Receivables. The Borrower and the Collateral Agent (on behalf of the Secured
Parties) each hereby authorizes the Servicer, and the Servicer agrees, to take
any and all steps necessary to re-perfect such security interest on behalf of
the Borrower and the Collateral Agent (on behalf of the Secured Parties) as
necessary because of the relocation of a Financed Vehicle or for any other
reason. In the event that the assignment of a Transferred Receivable to the
Borrower and the pledge thereof to the Collateral Agent (on behalf of the
Secured Parties), and the filing of UCC financing statements all as provided
herein, is insufficient, without a notation on the related Financed Vehicle's
certificate of title, or without fulfilling any additional administrative
requirements under the laws of the state in which the Financed Vehicle is
located, to perfect a security interest in the related Financed Vehicle in favor
of the Borrower and the pledge thereof to the Collateral Agent (on behalf of the
Secured Parties), the parties hereto agree that AFS's or ACC's (as applicable)
designation as the secured party on the certificate of title is, with respect to
each secured party, as applicable, in its capacity as agent of the Borrower and
the Secured Parties.

     (b)     Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of a Facility
Termination Event, the Agent may instruct the Borrower and the Servicer to take
or cause to be taken such reasonable action as may, in the opinion of counsel to
the Agent, be necessary or desirable to perfect or re-perfect the security
interests in the Financed

 
                                                                       Page 56

Vehicles securing the Transferred Receivables in the name of the Borrower and
the Collateral Agent (on behalf of the Secured Parties) (as lienholder) by
amending the title documents of such Financed Vehicles or by such other
reasonable means as may, in the opinion of counsel to the Agent, be necessary or
prudent. AFS hereby agrees to pay all expenses related to such perfection or re-
perfection and to take all action necessary therefor. In addition, prior to the
occurrence of a Facility Termination Event, the Agent may instruct the Borrower
and the Servicer to take or cause to be taken such reasonable action (at the
expense of the Lenders) as may, in the opinion of counsel to the Agent, be
necessary to perfect or re-perfect the security interest in the Financed
Vehicles underlying the Transferred Receivables in the name of the Borrower and
the Collateral Agent (on behalf of the Secured Parties), including by amending
the title documents of such Financed Vehicles or by such other reasonable means
as may, in the opinion of counsel to the Agent, be necessary or prudent.

     SECTION 8.6 Covenants, Representations and Warranties of Servicer and 
                 ---------------------------------------------------------
Sellers.  
-------

     (a)       The Servicer covenants to the Borrower, the Agent and the
Investors as follows:

                      (i)   Liens in Force.  The Financed Vehicle securing each
                            --------------
               Transferred Receivable shall not be released in whole or in part
               from the security interest granted by such Receivable, except
               upon payment in full of such Receivable or as otherwise
               contemplated herein;

                      (ii)  No Impairment. The Servicer shall do nothing to
                            -------------
               impair the rights of the Borrower or the Secured Parties in the
               Transferred Receivables, the Dealer Agreements, the Dealer
               Assignments or the Insurance Policies;

                      (iii) No Amendments. The Servicer shall not extend or
                            -------------
               otherwise amend the terms of any Transferred Receivable, except
               in accordance with Section 8.2;
                                  -----------

                      (iv)  Restriction on Liens.  The Servicer shall not: (i)
                            --------------------
               create or incur or agree to create or incur, or consent to cause
               (upon the happening of a contingency or otherwise) the creation,
               incurrence or existence of any Lien or restriction on
               transferability of the Receivables or of any Other Conveyed
               Property except for the Lien in favor of the Collateral Agent for
               the benefit of Secured Parties, and the restrictions on
               transferability imposed by this Agreement or (ii) sign or file
               under the UCC of any jurisdiction any financing statement or sign
               any security agreement authorizing any secured party thereunder
               to file such financing statement, with respect to the Receivables
               or to any Other Conveyed Property,

 
                                                                         Page 57

               except in each case any such instrument solely securing the
               rights and preserving the Lien of the Collateral Agent, for the
               benefit of Secured Parties. The Servicer will take no action to
               cause any Receivable to be evidenced by an instrument (as such
               term is defined in the relevant UCC);
                               
                    (v)    Servicing of Receivables.  The Servicer shall service
                           ------------------------          
               the ransferred Receivables as required by the terms of this
               Agreement and in material compliance with the current Servicing
               Procedures and Credit Manual for servicing all its other
               comparable motor vehicle receivables and the Servicer shall not
               change the Servicing Procedures and Credit Manual or the manner
               in which it services the Receivables in any way that can have a
               material adverse effect on the Transferred Receivables or the
               Investors;

                    (vi)   Compliance with Laws.  The Servicer shall comply in 
                           --------------------             
               all material respects with the laws of each state in which a
               Transferred Receivable is located, including, without limitation,
               all federal and state laws regarding the collection and
               enforcement of consumer debt;

                    (vii)  Notice of Relocation.   The Servicer shall give the
                           -------------------- 
               Agent at least 60 days prior written notice of any relocation
               of its principal executive office if, 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 of any new financing statement.
               The Servicer shall at all times maintain each office from which
               it services the Collateral and its principal executive office
               within the United States of America;

                    (viii) Maintenance of Computer Systems, etc. The Servicer
                           ------------------------------------
               shall maintain its computer systems so that, from and after the
               time of the first Advance under this Agreement, the Servicer's
               master computer records (including archives) that shall refer to
               the Collateral indicate clearly that such Collateral is subject
               to first priority security interest in favor of the Collateral
               Agent for the benefit of the Secured Parties. Indication of the
               Collateral Agent's security interest shall be deleted from or
               modified on the Servicer's computer systems when, and only when,
               the Collateral in question shall have been paid in full or sold
               by the Borrower in accordance herewith; and
               
                    (ix)   Other Sales, Grants or Transfers. If at any time the
                           --------------------------------  
               Servicer shall propose to sell, grant a security interest in, or
               otherwise transfer any interest in motor vehicle receivables to
               any prospective purchaser, lender or other transferee, the
               Servicer shall give to such prospective purchaser, lender, or
               other transferee computer tapes, records, or print-outs
 

 
                                                                       Page 58
 
               (including any restored from archives) that, if they shall refer
               in any manner whatsoever to any Collateral, shall indicate
               clearly that such Collateral is subject to a first priority
               security interest in favor of the Collateral Agent for the
               benefit of the Secured Parties.

     (b)       Each of the Sellers, the Servicer and any successor Servicer
represents and warrants to the Borrower, the Agent and the Investors, as to
itself that:

                    (i)    Organization and Good Standing. It has been duly
                           ------------------------------
               organized and is validly existing and in good standing under the
               laws of the jurisdiction of its organization, with power,
               authority and legal right to own its properties and to conduct
               its business as such properties are currently owned and such
               business is currently conducted, and had at all relevant times,
               and now has, power, authority and legal right to enter into and
               perform its obligations under this Agreement and the other
               Transaction Documents to which it is party (in any capacity);

                    (ii)   Due Qualification. It is duly qualified to do
                           -----------------
               business as a foreign corporation in good standing, and has
               obtained all necessary licenses and approvals, in all
               jurisdictions where the failure to do so would have a material
               adverse effect on its ability to perform its obligations
               hereunder or under any other Transaction Document to which it is
               party (in any capacity);


                    (iii)  Power and Authority. It has the power and authority
                           -------------------
               to execute and deliver this Agreement and the Transaction
               Documents to which it is a party (in any capacity) and to carry
               out its terms and their terms, respectively, and, in the case of
               the Sellers, to sell Receivables to the Borrower; and the
               execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement and the
               Transaction Documents to which it is a party (in any capacity)
               have been duly authorized by all necessary corporate action;


                    (iv)   Binding Obligation. This Agreement and the
                           ------------------
               Transaction Documents to which it is a party (in any capacity)
               shall constitute its legal, valid and binding obligations
               enforceable in accordance with their respective terms, except as
               enforceability may be limited by bankruptcy, insolvency,
               reorganization, or other similar laws affecting the enforcement
               of creditors' rights generally and by equitable limitations on
               the availability of specific remedies, regardless of whether such
               enforceability is considered in a proceeding in equity or at law;

          statements thereto which it files without the signature of the
          Borrower or a Seller and will promptly send to the Agent and AFS any
          financing or continuation statements thereto which it files without
          the signature of the Agent except, in the case of filings of copies

 
                                                                         Page 73

          statements and schedules further identifying and describing the
          Borrower Collateral and such other reports in connection with the

          reasonably request, all in reasonable detail.

               (iv)    In the event three consecutive Servicer's Certificates

          exceeds 10% of the Aggregate Outstanding Principal Balance of all
          Receivables in the Total Receivables Pool, the Borrower shall obtain
          from counsel in such state an opinion (or a reliance letter on a
          recently delivered opinion) addressed to the Agent and each Rating
          Agency and in form and substance reasonably acceptable to the Agent
          and each Rating Agency with respect to the requirements in such state

                                                              -----------    ---
or by a Seller under the Purchase Agreement, the Borrower may obtain releases of
the Collateral Agent's (for the benefit of the Secured Parties) security

Transfer Request, for shipment by 12:00 noon, New York City time on the second
succeeding Business Day.

     (c)  Continuation of Lien.  Unless released in writing by the Collateral
          --------------------
Agent, as herein provided, the security interest in favor of the Collateral
Agent, for the benefit of the Secured Parties, in all Borrower Collateral shall

                                            ------------------
under the Purchase Agreement, the Servicer; provided that the trustee or such
                                            --------
similar entity in connection with any Take-Out Securitization or the Servicer,
as the case may be, acknowledges and agrees (i) that all proceeds thereof that
it receives are held in trust for the Secured Parties and (ii) at such time that
the Agent or the Collateral Agent shall instruct such trustee to transfer such
proceeds, the trustee shall transfer such 

 
                                                                         Page 75

and complete copies of each Transaction Document to which the Borrower is a
party, each of which is in full force and effect. Neither the Borrower nor any
Affiliate party thereto is in default of any of its obligations thereunder in
any material respect. Upon the purchase and/or contribution of each Receivable
pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, the Borrower shall be the lawful owner of,
and have good title to, such Receivable and all assets relating thereto, free
and clear of any Liens. All such assets are transferred to the Borrower without
recourse to a Seller except as described in the Purchase Agreement. The
purchases of such assets by the Borrower constitute valid and true sales for
consideration (and not merely a pledge of such assets for security purposes) and
the contributions of such assets received by the Borrower constitute valid and
true transfers for consideration, each enforceable against creditors of the
Sellers, and no such assets shall constitute property of a Seller.

other than AFS, AFC or ACC. Not more than 25% of the Certificates shall at any
time be owned by ACC. All Certificates are and will be validly issued, and there
are no options, warrants or other rights to acquire Certificates or other equity
rights in the Borrower.

                    -------------------- 
Borrowing Base as of the most recently delivered Servicer's Certificate or
Borrowing Base Confirmation are Eligible Receivables.

                           COVENANTS OF THE BORROWER

     From the date hereof until the first day, following the Commitment
Termination Date, on which all Obligations shall have been finally and fully
paid and performed, the Borrower hereby covenants and agrees with the Investors
and the Agent as follows:

     SECTION 11.1   Protection of Security Interest of the Secured Parties.
                    ------------------------------------------------------

     (a)  At or prior to the date of the initial Advance, the Borrower shall
have filed or caused to be filed UCC-1 financing statements, executed by the
Borrower as debtor, naming the Collateral Agent (for the benefit of the Secured
Parties) as secured party and describing the Collateral, with the office of the
Secretary of State of the State of Texas and the office of the Secretary of
State of each of Delaware and California and in such other locations as may be
necessary to perfect the security interests intended to be granted hereby or as
the Collateral Agent or the Agent shall have required. From time to time
thereafter, the Borrower shall execute and file such financing statements and
cause to be executed and filed such continuation statements, all in such manner
and in such places as may be required by law fully to preserve, maintain and
protect the interest of the Collateral Agent and the Secured Parties under this
Agreement in the Borrower Collateral and in the proceeds thereof. The Borrower
shall deliver (or cause to be delivered) to the Agent and the Collateral Agent
file-stamped copies of, or filing receipts for, any document filed as provided
above, as soon as available following such filing. In the event that the
Borrower fails to perform its obligations under this subsection, the Agent or
the Collateral Agent may do so, in each case at the expense of the Borrower.

     (b)  The Borrower shall not change its name, identity, or structure in any
manner that would, could or might make any financing statement or continuation
statement filed by the Borrower (or by the Agent or the Collateral Agent on
behalf of the Borrower) in accordance with paragraph (a) above seriously
misleading within the meaning of (S) 9-402(7) of the UCC, unless the Borrower
shall have given the Agent and 

 
                                                                         Page 81



the Collateral Agent at least 60 days prior written notice thereof, and shall
promptly file appropriate amendments to all previously filed financing
statements and continuation statements.

     (c)  The Borrower shall give the Agent at least 60 days prior written
notice of any relocation of its principal executive office if, 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
of any new financing statement. The Borrower shall at all times maintain its
principal executive office within the United States of America.

     (d)  The Borrower shall maintain its computer systems, if any, and cause
the Servicer to maintain its computer system so that, from and after the time of
the first Advance under this Agreement, its master computer records (including
archives) that shall refer to the Collateral indicate clearly that such
Collateral is subject to first priority security interest in favor of the

damage or liability arose out of, or was imposed upon such Indemnified Party by
reason of the breach of this Agreement or any other Transaction Document to
which it is party by the Servicer, the negligence, misfeasance, or bad faith of
the Servicer in the performance of its duties under this Agreement or by reason
of negligent disregard of its obligations and duties under this Agreement.

or any such person against any liability that would otherwise be imposed by
reason of a breach of this Agreement or willful misfeasance, bad faith or
negligence in the performance of duties. The Servicer, the Backup Servicer and
any director, officer, employee or agent of the Servicer or Backup Servicer may
rely in good faith on the written advice of counsel or on any document of any
kind prima facie properly executed and submitted by any Person respecting any
matters arising under this Agreement. The Backup Servicer shall not be required
to expend or risk its own funds or otherwise incur financial liability in the
performance of any of its duties hereunder, or in the exercise of any of its
rights or powers, if the repayment of such funds or adequate written indemnity
against such risk or liability is not reasonably assured to it in writing prior
to the expenditure or risk of such funds or incurrence of financial liability.

     (b)  Unless acting as Servicer hereunder, the Backup Servicer shall not be
liable for any obligation of the Servicer contained in this Agreement, and the
Agent, the Borrower and the Investors shall look only to the Servicer to perform
such obligations.

     (c)  The Backup Servicer shall have no responsibility and shall not be in
default hereunder nor incur any liability for any failure, error, malfunction or
any delay in carrying out any of its duties under this Agreement if any such
failure or delay results from the Backup Servicer acting in accordance with
information prepared or supplied by a Person other than the Backup Servicer or
the failure of any such Person to prepare or provide such information. The
Backup Servicer shall have no responsibility, shall not be in default and shall
incur no liability (i) for any act or failure to act by any third party,
including the Servicer or for any inaccuracy or omission in a notice or
communication received by the Backup Servicer from any third party or (ii) that
is due to or results from the invalidity, unenforceability of any Receivable
under applicable law or the breach or the inaccuracy of any representation or
warranty made with respect to any Receivable.

     SECTION 12.4 Delegation of Duties. So long as AFS is the Servicer, the
                  --------------------                        
Servicer may delegate duties under this Agreement to an Affiliate of AFS with
the prior written consent of the Agent and written notice to the Backup
Servicer. The Servicer also may at any time perform the specific duties of (a)
repossession of Financed Vehicles, (b) tracking the insurance on Financed
Vehicles and (c) pursuing the collection of deficiency balances on Delinquent
Receivables through sub-contractors who are in the business of servicing
automotive receivables, without the consent of the Agent, the Lenders or the
Backup Servicer. The Servicer may also perform other non-material 

 
                                                                         Page 90

specific duties through such sub-contractors in accordance with customary
servicing policies and procedures without the prior consent of the Agent;
provided, however, that no such delegation or subcontracting of duties by the
--------  -------              
Servicer shall relieve the Servicer of its responsibility with respect to such
duties. Neither AFS nor any other party acting as Servicer hereunder shall
appoint any subservicer hereunder without the prior written consent of the Agent
and written notice to the Backup Servicer. If the Backup Servicer assumes the
role of successor Servicer, such successor Servicer may delegate its duties
under this Agreement to any Person or appoint a subservicer with the prior
consent of the Agent.

     SECTION 12.5 Servicer and Backup Servicer Not to Resign. Subject to the
                  ------------------------------------------
provisions of Section 12.2, neither the Servicer nor the Backup Servicer shall
              ------------
resign from the obligations and duties imposed on it by this Agreement as
Servicer or Backup Servicer except upon a determination that by reason of a
change in legal requirements the performance of its duties under this Agreement
would cause it to be in violation of such legal requirements in a manner which
would result in a material adverse effect on the Servicer or the Backup
Servicer, as the case may be, and the Agent does not elect to waive the
obligations of the Servicer or the Backup Servicer, as the case may be, to
perform the duties which render it legally unable to act or to delegate those
duties to another Person. Any such determination permitting the resignation of
the Servicer or Backup Servicer shall be evidenced by an Opinion of Counsel to
such effect delivered and acceptable to the Agent. No resignation of the
Servicer shall become effective until the Backup Servicer or an entity
acceptable to the Agent and the Required Lenders shall have assumed the
responsibilities and obligations of the Servicer. No resignation of the Backup
Servicer shall become effective until an entity acceptable to the Agent and the
Required Lenders shall have assumed the responsibilities and obligations of the
Backup Servicer; provided, however, that in the event a successor Backup
                 --------  -------
Servicer is not appointed within 60 days after the Backup Servicer has given
notice of its resignation as permitted by this Section 12.5, the Backup Servicer
                                               ------------                     
may petition a court for its removal. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Backup
Servicer may resign for any reason, provided an entity acceptable to the Agent
and the Required Lenders shall have assumed the responsibilities and obligations
of the Backup Servicer prior to the effectiveness of any such resignation.

                                 ARTICLE XIII

become due or the taking of corporate action by the Servicer (or, if AFS or an

     (g)  Any representation, warranty or statement of the Servicer (or, if AFS
or an Affiliate of the Borrower is the Servicer, the Borrower) made in this
Agreement or any certificate, report or other writing delivered pursuant hereto
shall prove to be incorrect in any material respect as of the time when the same

                            -------------------

     SECTION 13.2  Consequences of a Servicer Termination Event. If a Servicer
                   --------------------------------------------       
Termination Event shall occur and be continuing, the Agent may, and, upon the
direction of the Required Lenders, the Agent shall, by written notice given to
the Servicer, terminate all of the rights and obligations of the Servicer under
this Agreement. On or after the receipt by the Servicer of such written notice
or if the Agent shall not have delivered a Servicer Extension Notice pursuant to
Section 8.14, all authority, power, obligations and responsibilities of the
------------
Servicer under this Agreement automatically shall pass to, be vested in and
become obligations and responsibilities of the Backup Servicer; provided,
                                                                --------
however, that the Backup Servicer shall have no liability with respect to any
-------
obligation which was required to be performed by the prior Servicer prior to the
date that the Backup Servicer becomes the Servicer or any claim of a third party
based on any alleged action or inaction of the prior Servicer. The Backup
Servicer is authorized and empowered by this Agreement to execute and deliver,
on behalf of the prior Servicer, as attorney-in-fact or otherwise, any and all
documents and other instruments and to do or accomplish all other acts or things
necessary or appropriate to effect the purposes of such termination, whether to
complete the transfer and endorsement of the Transferred Receivables and related
documents to show the Collateral Agent (for the benefit of the Secured Parties)
as lienholder or secured party, or otherwise. The prior Servicer agrees to
cooperate with the Backup Servicer in

 
                                                                         Page 93

effecting the termination of the responsibilities and rights of the prior
Servicer under this Agreement, including, without limitation and at the prior
Servicer's expense, the transfer to the Backup Servicer for administration by it
of all cash amounts that shall at the time be held by the prior Servicer for
deposit, or have been deposited by the prior Servicer, in the Collection Account
or thereafter received with respect to the Transferred Receivables and the
delivery to the Backup Servicer of all Receivable Files, Monthly Records and
Collection Records and a computer tape in readable form containing all
information necessary to enable the Backup Servicer or a successor Servicer to
service the Transferred Receivables. In addition, upon the occurrence of a
Servicer Termination Event, the Servicer shall, if so requested by the Agent,
deliver to the Backup Servicer its Monthly Records within one day after demand
therefor and a computer tape or diskette (or any other means of electronic
transmission acceptable to the Backup Servicer) containing as of the close of
business on the date of demand all of the data maintained by the Servicer in
computer format in connection with servicing the Transferred Receivables. If
requested by the Agent, the Backup Servicer or successor Servicer shall
terminate the Lockbox Agreement with respect to the Transferred Receivables and
direct the Obligors to make all payments under the Transferred Receivables
directly to the successor Servicer (in which event the successor Servicer shall
process such payments in accordance with Section 8.2(e)), or to a lockbox
                                         --------------
established by the successor Servicer at the direction of the Agent, at the
prior Servicer's expense. The terminated Servicer shall grant the Agent, the
Collateral Agent and the Backup Servicer reasonable access to the terminated
Servicer's premises at the terminated Servicer's expense.

     SECTION 13.3  Appointment of Successor Servicer.
                   ---------------------------------

     (a)  On and after (i) the time the Servicer receives a notice of
termination pursuant to Section 13.2 or (ii) upon the resignation of the
                        ------------
Servicer pursuant to Section 12.5 or (iii) the receipt by the Backup Servicer
                     ------------
(or any alternate successor Servicer appointed pursuant to Section 13.3(b)) of
                                                           ---------------
written notice from the Agent that the Agent is not extending the Servicer's
term pursuant to Section 8.14, the Backup Servicer shall be the successor in all
                 ------------
respects to the Servicer in its capacity as servicer under this Agreement and
the transactions set forth or provided for in this Agreement and shall be
subject to all the responsibilities, restrictions, duties, liabilities and
termination provisions relating thereto placed on the Servicer by the terms and
provisions of this Agreement; provided, however, that the Backup Servicer shall
                              --------  -------
not be liable for any acts, omissions or obligations of the Servicer prior to
such succession or for any breach by the Servicer of any of its representations
and warranties contained in this Agreement or in any related document. The
Servicer and such successor shall take such action, consistent with this
Agreement, as shall be necessary to effectuate any such succession. If a
successor Servicer is acting as Servicer hereunder, it shall be subject to
termination under Section 13.2 upon the occurrence of any Servicer Termination
                  ------------
Event applicable to it as Servicer.

 
                                                                         Page 94

     (b)  The Agent (with the consent of the Required Lenders) may exercise at
any time its right to appoint as Backup Servicer or as successor to the Servicer
a person other than the Person serving as Backup Servicer at the time and shall
have no liability to the Investors, the Borrower, AFS, the Person then serving
as Backup Servicer or any other Person if it does so. Notwithstanding the above,
if the Backup Servicer shall be legally unable or unwilling to act as Servicer
and the Agent shall fail to appoint a successor Servicer within 60 days of its
receipt of notice from the Backup Servicer to such effect, the Backup Servicer
may petition a court of competent jurisdiction to appoint any Eligible Servicer
as the successor to the Servicer. Pending such appointment, the Backup Servicer
shall act as successor Servicer unless it is legally unable to do so, in which
event the outgoing Servicer shall continue to act as Servicer until a successor
has been appointed and accepted such appointment. Subject to Section 12.5, no
                                                             ------------ 
provision of this Agreement shall be construed as relieving the Backup Servicer
of its obligation to succeed as successor Servicer upon the termination of the
Servicer pursuant to Section 13.2, the resignation of the Servicer pursuant to
                     ------------
Section 12.5 or the non-extension of the servicing term of the Servicer pursuant
------------
to Section 8.14. If, upon the termination of the Servicer pursuant to Section
   ------------                                                       -------
13.2 or 8.14 or the resignation of the Servicer pursuant to Section 12.5, the
----    ----                                                ------------
Agent (with the consent of the Required Lenders) appoints a successor Servicer
other than the Backup Servicer, the Backup Servicer shall not be relieved of its
duties as Backup Servicer hereunder.

     (c)  Any successor Servicer appointed pursuant to this Section 13 shall be
                                                            ----------
entitled to compensation based upon a rate equal to the Servicing Fee Rate. In
addition, any successor Servicer shall be entitled to receive Transition Costs
in accordance with the Security Agreement.

          --------------------
Event (other than a Facility Termination Event described in Section 14.1(d)),
                                                            ---------------

and/or, as the case may be, the Facility (and the Commitments of the Committed
Lenders, if any, thereunder) shall terminate.

Facility Termination Event shall have occurred and be continuing, the Agent may

the UCC in respect of the Borrower Collateral (or any portion thereof).

     (b)  The rights and remedies provided to the Collateral Agent, the Agent

cumulative and not exclusive of any other rights and remedies the Collateral
Agent, the Agent and the Secured Parties may have under applicable law.

     (c)  If a Facility Termination Event shall have occurred and be continuing,
then at any time after the acceleration of the maturity of the Advances and
other Obligations has been made and before a judgment or decree for payment of
the money due has been obtained by the Agent as hereinafter provided, the
Required Lenders, by written notice to the Borrower and the Agent, may rescind
and annul such declaration and its consequences if:

               (i)  the Borrower has paid or deposited with the Agent a sum
          sufficient to pay

                    (A)  all payments of principal of and Yield on the Advances
               and all other amounts that would then be due hereunder or if the

               not occurred; and

               the reasonable compensation, expenses, disbursements and advances
               of the Agent and its agents and counsel; and

               (ii) all Facility Termination Events, other than the nonpayment
          of the principal of the Advances that has become due solely by such
          acceleration, have been cured or waived.

     No such rescission shall affect any subsequent default or impair any right
consequent thereto.

duties. The Agent shall not be responsible to any Lender for the negligence or
misconduct of any agents or attorneys-in-fact selected by it with reasonable
care.

     SECTION 15.3  Exculpatory Provisions. Neither the Agent (acting in such
                   ----------------------

entitled to rely, and shall be fully protected in relying, upon any note,
writing, resolution, notice, consent, certificate, affidavit, letter, cablegram,
telegram, telecopy, telex or teletype message, statement, order or other
document or conversation believed by it to be genuine and correct and to have
been signed, sent or made by the proper Person or Persons and upon advice and

the Lenders), independent accountants and other experts selected by the Agent.
The Agent shall in all cases be fully justified in failing or refusing to take
any action under this Agreement, the Security Agreement, any other Transaction
Document or any other document furnished in connection herewith or therewith
unless it shall first receive such advice or concurrence of the Lenders, as it
deems appropriate, or it shall first be indemnified to its satisfaction by the
Lenders against any and all liability, cost and expense which may be incurred by

                    -----------------------------------------------

     (a)   To the extent the Agent is entitled to consent to or withhold its

                    ---------------------
that neither the Agent, nor any of its officers, directors, employees, agents,
attorneys-in-fact or affiliates has made any representations or warranties to it
and that no act by the Agent hereafter taken, including, without limitation, any
review of the affairs of either the Borrower, any Seller, AFS, the Servicer or
the Backup Servicer, shall be deemed to constitute any representation or
warranty by the Agent to any Lender. Except as expressly provided herein, the
Agent shall not have any duty or responsibility to provide any Lender with any
credit or other information concerning the Borrower Collateral or the business,
operations, property, prospects, financial and other condition or
creditworthiness of the Borrower, AFS, any Seller, the Servicer, the Lenders or
the Backup Servicer which may come into the possession of the Agent or any of

so in accordance with the terms of the Transaction Documents), ratably according
to their Commitment Percentages, from and against any and all liabilities,
obligations, losses, damages, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs,
expenses or disbursements of any kind or nature whatsoever (including, without
limitation, the reasonable fees and disbursements of counsel for the Agent or
the affected Person in connection with any investigative, or judicial proceeding
commenced or threatened, whether or not the Agent or such affected Person shall
be designated a party thereto) that may at any time be imposed on, incurred by
or asserted against the Agent or such affected Person as a result of, or arising
out of, or in any way related to or by reason of, any of the transactions
contemplated hereunder or under the Transaction Documents or any other document
furnished in connection herewith or therewith (but excluding any such
liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, actions, judgments, suits,
costs, expenses or disbursements resulting solely from the gross negligence or
willful misconduct of the Agent or such affected Person).

     SECTION 15.8   Successor Agent.  The Agent may, upon five (5) days'
                    ---------------

in either case, that a Lender agrees to become the successor Agent hereunder in
accordance with the next sentence. If the Agent shall resign as Agent under this
Agreement, then the Required Lenders during such period shall appoint from among
the Committed Lenders a

 
                                                                        Page 102

successor agent, whereupon such successor agent shall succeed to the rights,
powers and duties of the Agent, and the term "Agent" shall mean such successor
agent, effective upon its acceptance of such appointment, and the former Agent's
rights, powers and duties as Agent shall be terminated, without any other or
further act or deed on the part of such former Agent or any of the parties to
this Agreement. After the retiring Agent's resignation hereunder as Agent, the
provisions of this Article XV shall inure to its benefit as to any actions taken
                   ----------           
or omitted to be taken by it while it was Agent under this Agreement.

and (ii) in no event shall the Agent be liable under or in connection with this
Agreement, the Security Agreement or any other Transaction Document for
indirect, special, or consequential losses or damages of any kind, including
lost profits, even if advised of the possibility thereof and regardless of the

nor any of its respective directors, officers, agents or employees shall be
liable for any action taken or omitted to be taken in good faith by it or them

Transaction Document, except for its or their own gross negligence or willful
misconduct. Without limiting the foregoing, the Agent (a) may consult with legal

liable for any action taken or omitted to be taken in good faith by it in
accordance with the advice of such counsel, accountants or experts, (b) shall

than its own statements) made in or in connection with this Agreement, the
Security Agreement or the other Transaction Documents, (c) shall not be
responsible to the Lenders, the Borrower, the AFS, the Servicer, any Seller or
the Backup Servicer for the due execution, legality, validity, enforceability,
genuineness, sufficiency or value of this Agreement, the Security Agreement or
the other Transaction Documents (other than the legality, validity,

sent by the proper party or parties. Notwithstanding anything else herein or in
the other Transaction Documents, it is agreed that where the Agent may be
required under this Agreement, the Security

 
                                                                        Page 103

Agreement or the other Transaction Documents to give notice of any event or
condition or to take any action as a result of the occurrence of any event or
the existence of any condition, the Agent agrees to give such notice or take
such action only to the extent that it has actual knowledge of the occurrence of
such event or the existence of such condition, and shall incur no liability for
any failure to give such notice or take such action in the absence of such
knowledge.

     SECTION 15.10  Agent and Affiliates.  The Agent and any of its Affiliates
                    --------------------

Affiliates and any Person who may do business with or own securities of the

of their respective rights or obligations hereunder or any interest herein
without the prior written consent of the Agent and all the Lenders or, in the
case of Backup Servicer, the Agent and the Required Lenders. No Lender may
assign its rights or obligations hereunder, any Advance or the Note (or any
portion thereof) to any Person without the prior written consent of the Borrower
and the Agent (as to the Borrower only, such consent not to be unreasonably
withheld or delayed); provided, however, that any Lender may assign, or grant a

     SECTION 16.2   Documentation.  Each Lender shall deliver to each 
                    -------------
assignee an assignment, in such form as such Lender and the related assignee may

Advance or Note to the assignee; and such Lender shall promptly execute and
deliver all further instruments and documents, and take all further action, that
the assignee may reasonably request, in order to perfect, protect or more fully
evidence the assignee's right, title and interest in and to the items assigned,
and to enable the assignee to exercise or enforce any

 
                                                                        Page 104

respective assignee receiving such assignment shall have all of the rights of
such Lender hereunder with respect to such Advances and all references to the

          SECTION 16.4   Notice of Assignment. Each Lender shall provide notice
                         --------------------

Note to reflect any assignments made pursuant to this Article XVI or otherwise.
                                                      -----------

          SECTION 16.5   Registration; Registration of Transfer and Exchange.
                         ---------------------------------------------------

          (a)  The Agent shall keep a register (the "Note Register") in which,
                                                     -------------
subject to such reasonable regulations as it may prescribe, the Agent shall
provide for the registration of the Note and of transfer of interests in the
Note. The Agent is hereby appointed "Note Registrar" for the purpose of 
                                     --------------
registering the Note and transfers of the Note as herein provided.

          (b)  Each person who has or who acquired a Note or interest therein
shall be deemed by such acquisition to have agreed to be bound by the provisions
of this Section 16.5. No Note may be transferred prior to the Commitment
        ------------
Termination Date except to a successor Agent hereunder. Thereafter the Note may
be exchanged (in accordance with Section 16.5(c)) and transferred to the holders
                                 ----------------
(or their agents or nominees) of the Advances and to any assignee (in accordance
with Section 16.1) (or its agent or nominee) of all or a portion of the
     ------------
Advances. The Agent shall not register (or cause to be registered) the transfer
of the Note, unless the proposed transferee shall have delivered to the Agent
(i) either (x) evidence satisfactory to it that the transfer of such Note is
exempt from registration or qualification under the Securities Act of 1933, as
amended, and all applicable state securities laws and that the transfer does not
constitute a "prohibited transaction" under ERISA or (y) an express agreement by
the proposed transferee to be bound by and to abide by the provisions of this
Section 16.5, the restrictions noted on the face of such Note and (ii) a
------------
properly executed Form W-9 and, in the case of a transferee who is a foreign
person (within the meaning of Section 7701(a)(5) of the Code), a properly
executed Form 4224 or Form 1001.

          (c)  After the Commitment Termination Date, at the option of the
holder thereof, the Note may be exchanged for one or more new Notes of any
authorized denominations and of a like class and aggregate principal amount at
an office or agency of the Borrower. Whenever any Notes are so surrendered for
exchange, the Borrower shall execute and deliver (through the Agent) the new
Notes which the holder

 
                                                                        Page 105

making the exchange is entitled to receive.

     (d)  Upon surrender for registration of transfer of any Note at an office
or agency of the Borrower, the Borrower shall execute and deliver (through the
Agent), in the name of the designated transferee or transferees, one or more new
Notes of any authorized denominations and of a like class and aggregate
principal amount.

     (e)  All Notes issued upon any registration of transfer or exchange of any
Note in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement shall be the valid
obligations of the Borrower, evidencing the same debt, and entitled to the same
benefits under this Agreement, as the Note(s) surrendered upon such registration
of transfer or exchange.

     (f)  Every Note presented or surrendered for registration of transfer or
for exchange shall (if so required by the Borrower or the Agent) be fully
endorsed, or be accompanied by a written instrument of transfer in form
satisfactory to the Note Registrar, duly executed by the holder thereof or his
attorney duly authorized in writing. Each such Note shall be accompanied by a
statement providing the name of the transferee and indicating whether the
transferee is subject to income tax backup withholding requirements and whether
the transferee is the sole beneficial owner of such Notes.

     (g)  No service charge shall be made for any registration of transfer or
exchange of Notes, but the Borrower may require payment from the transferee
holder of a sum sufficient to cover any tax or other governmental charge that
may be imposed in connection with any registration of transfer of exchange of

of such loss, claim, damage or liability in such proportion as is appropriate to
reflect not only the relative benefits received by such Indemnified Party, on
the one hand, and AFS, its Affiliates and the Borrower, on the other hand, but
also the relative fault of such Indemnified Party, on the one hand, and AFS, its
Affiliates or the Borrower, on the other hand, as well as any other relevant
equitable considerations.
