On the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in this Agreement, the Bank agrees to transfer, assign, set over, sell and otherwise convey to the Purchaser without recourse (subject to the obligations herein) on the Closing Date all of its right, title and interest in, to and under the Receivables, the Collections after the Cut-Off Date, the Receivable Files and the Related Security relating thereto, described in the assignment in the form of Exhibit A (the Assignment) delivered on the Closing Date (the Purchased Assets) having a Net Pool Balance as of the Cut-Off Date equal to $503,778,340.17, which sale shall be effective as of the Cut-Off Date.

REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES AND COVENANTS
SECTION 3.1 Representations and Warranties of the Bank. The Bank makes the following representations and warranties as of the Closing Date on which the Purchaser will be deemed to have relied in acquiring the Purchased Assets. The representations and warranties will survive the conveyance of the Purchased Assets to the Purchaser pursuant to this Agreement, the conveyance of the Purchased Assets to the Issuer pursuant to the Sale and Servicing Agreement and the Grant thereof by the Issuer to the Indenture Trustee pursuant to the Indenture:
(a) Existence and Power. The Bank is a federally chartered savings association validly existing and in good standing under the laws of the United States and has, in all material respects, all power and authority required to carry on its business as now conducted. The Bank has obtained all necessary licenses and approvals in each jurisdiction where the failure to do so would materially and adversely affect the ability of the Bank to perform its obligations under the Transaction Documents or the enforceability or collectability of the Receivables or any other part of the Purchased Assets.
|-2-||Purchase Agreement (USAA 2019-1)|
(b) Authorization and No Contravention. The execution, delivery and performance by the Bank of each Transaction Document to which it is a party (i) have been duly authorized by all necessary action on the part of the Bank and (ii) do not contravene or constitute a default under (A) any applicable law, rule or regulation, (B) its organizational documents or (C) any material agreement, contract, order or other instrument to which it is a party or its property is subject (other than violations which do not affect the legality, validity or enforceability of any of such agreements and which, individually or in the aggregate, would not materially and adversely affect the transactions contemplated by, or the Banks ability to perform its obligations under, the Transaction Documents).
(c) No Consent Required. No approval or authorization by, or filing with, any Governmental Authority is required in connection with the execution, delivery and performance by the Bank of any Transaction Document other than (i) UCC filings, (ii) approvals and authorizations that have previously been obtained and filings that have previously been made and (iii) approvals, authorizations or filings which, if not obtained or made, would not have a material adverse effect on the enforceability or collectability of the Receivables or any other part of the Purchased Assets or would not materially and adversely affect the ability of the Bank to perform its obligations under the Transaction Documents.
(d) Binding Effect. Each Transaction Document to which the Bank is a party constitutes the legal, valid and binding obligation of the Bank enforceable against the Bank in accordance with its terms, except as such enforceability may be limited by applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium, receivership, conservatorship or other similar laws affecting creditors rights generally and, if applicable, the rights of creditors of federally chartered savings associations from time to time in effect or by general principles of equity.
(e) No Proceedings. There are no actions, suits or Proceedings pending or, to the knowledge of the Bank, threatened against the Bank before or by any Governmental Authority that (i) assert the invalidity or unenforceability of this Agreement or any of the other Transaction Documents, (ii) seek to prevent the issuance of the Notes or the consummation of any of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement or any of the other Transaction Documents, (iii) seek any determination or ruling that would materially and adversely affect the performance by the Bank of its obligations under this Agreement or any of the other Transaction Documents, or (iv) relate to the Bank that would materially and adversely affect the federal or Applicable Tax State income, excise, franchise or similar tax attributes of the Notes.
(f) Lien Filings. The Bank is not aware of any material judgment, ERISA or tax Lien filings against the Bank.
(g) Official Record. So long as the Notes remain outstanding, the Transaction Documents to which the Bank is a party shall be treated as an official record of the Bank within the meaning of Section 13(e) of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act (12 U.S.C. Section 1823(e)).
(h) Sale Treatment. The transactions contemplated by the Transaction Documents and the Sale Agreement, dated as of the date hereof, between the Purchaser and United Services Automobile Association, a Texas reciprocal interinsurance exchange, result in sale treatment with respect to the Receivables for financial accounting purposes on the standalone balance sheet of the Bank in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.
|-3-||Purchase Agreement (USAA 2019-1)|
(i) Bank Approval. Each of the Transaction Documents to which the Bank is a party has been approved by the board of directors, the executive committee or the loan committee of the Bank and such approval is reflected in the minutes of the board of directors, executive committee or loan committee.
SECTION 3.2 Representations and Warranties of the Bank Regarding the Purchased Assets. On the date hereof, the Bank hereby makes the following representations and warranties to the Purchaser. Such representations and warranties will survive the conveyance of the Purchased Assets to the Purchaser pursuant to this Agreement, the conveyance of the Purchased Assets to the Issuer under the Sale and Servicing Agreement, and the Grant of the Purchased Assets by the Issuer to the Indenture Trustee pursuant to the Indenture.
(a) The Receivables were selected using selection procedures that were not known or intended by the Bank to be adverse to the Issuer.
(b) The Receivables and the other Purchased Assets have been validly assigned by the Bank to the Purchaser.
(c) The information with respect to the Receivables transferred on the Closing Date as set forth in the Schedule of Receivables was true and correct in all material respects as of the Cut-Off Date.
(d) No Receivables are pledged, assigned, sold, subject to a security interest or otherwise conveyed other than pursuant to the Transaction Documents. The Bank has not authorized the filing of and is not aware of any financing statements against the Bank or an Originator that includes a description of collateral covering any Receivable other than any financing statement relating to security interests granted under the Transaction Documents or that have been or, prior to the assignment of such Receivables hereunder, will be terminated, amended or released. This Agreement creates a valid and continuing security interest in the Receivables (other than the Related Security with respect thereto, to the extent that an ownership interest therein cannot be perfected by the filing of a financing statement) in favor of the Purchaser which security interest is prior to all other Liens (other than Permitted Liens) and is enforceable as such against all other creditors of and purchasers and assignees from the Bank.
(e) The representations and warranties regarding creation, perfection and priority of security interests in the Purchased Assets, which are attached to this Agreement as Schedule I, are true and correct to the extent that they are applicable.
SECTION 3.3 Representations and Warranties of the Bank as to each Receivable. On the date hereof, the Bank hereby makes the representations and warranties set forth on Schedule II as to the Receivables sold, contributed, transferred, assigned, set over, sold and otherwise conveyed to the Purchaser under this Agreement on which such representations and warranties the Purchaser relies in acquiring the Receivables. Such representations and warranties shall survive the conveyance of the Purchased Assets to the Purchaser pursuant to this Agreement, the sale of the Receivables to the Issuer under the Sale and Servicing Agreement, and the Grant of the Receivables by the Issuer to the Indenture Trustee pursuant to the Indenture. Notwithstanding any statement to the contrary contained herein or in any other Transaction
|-4-||Purchase Agreement (USAA 2019-1)|
Document, the Bank shall not be required to notify any insurer with respect to any Insurance Policy obtained by an Obligor. The Bank hereby agrees that the Issuer shall have the right to enforce any and all rights under this Agreement assigned to the Issuer under the Sale and Servicing Agreement, including the right to cause the Bank to repurchase any Receivable with respect to which it is in breach of any of its representation and warranties set forth in Schedule II, directly against the Bank as though the Issuer were a party to this Agreement, and the Issuer shall not be obligated to exercise any such rights indirectly through the Depositor. Any inaccuracy in any of such representations or warranties will be deemed not to constitute a breach of such representation or warranty if such inaccuracy does not affect the ability of the Issuer to receive and retain payment in full on such Receivable.
If the Asset Representations Reviewer determines that there was a Test Fail with respect to any Receivable, the Bank will investigate whether the noncompliance of such Receivable with any of the representations and warranties made by the Bank with respect to such Receivable and set forth on Schedule II of this Agreement materially and adversely affects the interests of the Issuer or the Noteholders such that the Bank would be required to make a repurchase of such Receivable pursuant to Section 3.4. In conducting such investigation, the Bank will refer to the information available to it, which may include the Review Report prepared by the Asset Representations Reviewer with respect to such Receivable.
SECTION 3.4 Repurchase upon Breach. Upon discovery by or notice to the Purchaser or the Bank of a breach of any of the representations and warranties set forth in Section 3.3 with respect to any Receivable at the time such representations and warranties were made which materially and adversely affects the interests of the Issuer or the Noteholders, the party discovering such breach or receiving such notice shall give prompt written notice thereof to the other party; provided, that delivery of the Servicers Certificate, which identifies that Receivables are being or have been repurchased, shall be deemed to constitute prompt notice by the Servicer and the Seller of such breach; provided, further, that the failure to give such notice shall not affect any obligation of the Bank hereunder. If the Bank does not correct or cure such breach prior to the end of the Collection Period which includes the 60th day (or, if the Bank elects, an earlier date) after the date that the Bank became aware or was notified of such breach, then the Bank shall purchase any Receivable materially and adversely affected by such breach from the Purchaser (or its assignee) on the Payment Date following the end of such Collection Period. Any such purchase by the Bank shall be at a price equal to the Repurchase Price. In consideration for such repurchase, the Bank shall make (or shall cause to be made) a payment to the Purchaser (or its assignee) equal to the Repurchase Price by depositing such amount into the Collection Account prior to 11:00 a.m., New York City time on such Payment Date. Upon payment of such Repurchase Price by the Bank, the Purchaser (or its assignee) shall release and shall execute and deliver such instruments of release, transfer or assignment, in each case without recourse or representation, as may be reasonably requested by the Bank to evidence such release, transfer or assignment or more effectively vest in the Bank or its designee any Receivable repurchased pursuant hereto. It is understood and agreed that the obligation of the Bank to repurchase any Receivable as described above shall constitute the sole remedy with respect to such breach available to the Purchaser.
|-5-||Purchase Agreement (USAA 2019-1)|
SECTION 3.5 Protection of Title.
(a) The Bank shall authorize and file such financing statements and cause to be authorized and filed such continuation and other 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 Purchaser under this Agreement in the Receivables as well as any subsequent assignee of the Receivables (other than any Related Security with respect thereto, to the extent that the interest of the Purchaser therein cannot be perfected by the filing of a financing statement). The Bank shall deliver (or cause to be delivered) to the Purchaser as well as any subsequent assignee of the Receivables file-stamped copies of, or filing receipts for, any document filed as provided above, as soon as available following such filing.
(b) The Bank will notify the Purchaser in writing within ten (10) days following the occurrence of (i) any change in the Banks organizational structure as a federally chartered savings association, (ii) any change in the Banks location (within the meaning of Section 9-307 of the UCC of all applicable jurisdictions) and (iii) any change in the Banks name and shall have taken all action prior to making such change (or shall have made arrangements to take such action substantially simultaneously with such change, if it is not possible to take such action in advance) reasonably necessary or advisable in the opinion of the Purchaser to amend all previously filed financing statements or continuation statements described in paragraph (a) above.
(c) The Bank shall maintain (or shall cause the Servicer to maintain) its computer systems so that, from time to time after the conveyance under this Agreement of the Receivables, the master computer records (including any backup archives, it being understood that any such backup archives may not reflect such interest until thirty-five (35) days after the applicable changes are made to such master computer records) that refer to a Receivable shall indicate clearly the interest of the Purchaser (or any subsequent assignee of the Purchaser) in such Receivable and that such Receivable is owned by such Person. Indication of such Persons interest in a Receivable shall not be deleted from or modified on such computer systems until, and only until, the related Receivable shall have been paid in full or repurchased.
(d) If at any time the Bank 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 Bank shall give to such prospective purchaser, lender or other transferee computer tapes, records or printouts (including any restored from backup archives) that, if they shall refer in any manner whatsoever to any Receivable, shall indicate clearly that such Receivable has been sold and is owned by the Purchaser (or any subsequent assignee of the Purchaser).
SECTION 3.6 Other Liens or Interests. Except for the conveyances and grants of security interests pursuant to this Agreement and the other Transaction Documents, the Bank shall not sell, pledge, assign or transfer the Receivables or other property transferred to the Purchaser to any other Person, or grant, create, incur, assume or suffer to exist any Lien (other than Permitted Liens) on any interest therein, and the Bank shall defend the right, title and interest of the Purchaser in, to and under such Receivables or other property transferred to the Purchaser against all claims of third parties claiming through or under the Bank.
|-6-||Purchase Agreement (USAA 2019-1)|
SECTION 4.1 Transfers Intended as Sale; Security Interest.
(a) Each of the parties hereto expressly intends and agrees that the transfers contemplated and effected under this Agreement are complete and absolute sales and contributions rather than pledges or assignments of only a security interest and shall be given effect as such for all purposes. It is further the intention of the parties hereto that the Receivables and related Purchased Assets shall not be treated as property of the Bank by the FDIC or other governmental authority acting as conservator or receiver of the Bank in a conservatorship, receivership, insolvency or other similar proceeding in respect of the Bank under the Federal Deposit Insurance Act, 12 U.S.C. Section 1811 et seq. or other applicable law. The sales and transfers by the Bank of the Receivables and related Purchased Assets hereunder are and shall be without recourse to, or representation or warranty (express or implied) by, the Bank, except as otherwise specifically provided herein. The limited rights of recourse specified herein against the Bank are intended to provide a remedy for breach of representations and warranties relating to the condition of the property sold, rather than to the collectability of the Receivables.
(b) Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that the Receivables and other Purchased Assets are held to be property of the Bank, or if for any reason this Agreement is held or deemed to create indebtedness or a security interest in the Receivables and other Purchased Assets, then it is intended that:
(i) This Agreement shall be deemed to be a security agreement within the meaning of Articles 8 and 9 of the New York UCC and the UCC of any other applicable jurisdiction;
(ii) The conveyance provided for in Section 2.1 shall be deemed to be a grant by the Bank of, and the Bank hereby grants to the Purchaser, a security interest in all of its right (including the power to convey title thereto), title and interest, whether now owned or hereafter acquired, in and to the Receivables and other Purchased Assets, to secure such indebtedness and the performance of the obligations of the Bank hereunder;
(iii) The possession by the Purchaser or its agent of the Receivable Files and any other property constituting instruments, money, negotiable documents or chattel paper shall be deemed to be possession by the secured party or possession by the purchaser or a Person designated by such purchaser, for purposes of perfecting the security interest pursuant to the New York UCC and the UCC of any other applicable jurisdiction; and
(iv) Notifications to Persons holding such property, and acknowledgments, receipts or confirmations from Persons holding such property, shall be deemed to be notifications to, or acknowledgments, receipts or confirmations from, bailees or agents (as applicable) of the Purchaser for the purpose of perfecting such security interest under applicable law.
|-7-||Purchase Agreement (USAA 2019-1)|
SECTION 4.2 Notices, Etc. All demands, notices and communications hereunder shall be in writing and shall be delivered or mailed by registered or certified first-class United States mail, postage prepaid, hand delivery, prepaid courier service or, if so provided on Schedule I to the Sale and Servicing Agreement, by electronic transmission, and addressed in each case as specified on Schedule I to the Sale and Servicing Agreement or at such other address as shall be designated by any of the specified addressees in a written notice to the other parties hereto. Delivery will be deemed to have been given and made: (i) upon delivery or, in the case of a letter mailed by registered or certified first-class United States mail, postage prepaid, three (3) days after deposit in the mail, (ii) in the case of electronic transmission, when receipt is confirmed by telephone or reply email from the recipient and (iii) in the case of an electronic posting to a password-protected website to which the recipient has been provided access, upon delivery (without the requirement of confirmation of receipt) and notice (including email) to such recipient stating that such electronic posting has occurred.
SECTION 4.3 Choice of Law. THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE GOVERNED BY AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE INTERNAL, SUBSTANTIVE LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK WITHOUT REFERENCE TO THE RULES THEREOF RELATING TO CONFLICTS OF LAW, OTHER THAN SECTIONS 5-1401 AND 5-1402 OF THE NEW YORK GENERAL OBLIGATIONS LAW, AND THE OBLIGATIONS, RIGHTS AND REMEDIES OF THE PARTIES HEREUNDER SHALL BE DETERMINED IN ACCORDANCE WITH SUCH LAWS.
SECTION 4.4 Headings. The section headings hereof have been inserted for convenience only and shall not be construed to affect the meaning, construction or effect of this Agreement.
SECTION 4.5 Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts, each of which so executed shall be deemed to be an original, but all of such counterparts shall together constitute but one and the same instrument.
SECTION 4.6 Amendment.
(a) Any term or provision of this Agreement may be amended by the Bank and the Purchaser without the consent of the Indenture Trustee, any Noteholder, the Issuer, the Owner Trustee or any other Person subject to the satisfaction of one of the following conditions:
(i) the Bank or the Purchaser delivers to the Indenture Trustee: (a) an Opinion of Counsel to the effect that such amendment will not materially and adversely affect the interests of the Noteholders and (b) an Officers Certificate of the Bank or the Purchaser, respectively, to the effect that such amendment will not materially and adversely affect the interests of the Noteholders; or
(ii) the Rating Agency Condition is satisfied with respect to such amendment and the Bank or the Purchaser notifies the Indenture Trustee in writing that the Rating Agency Condition is satisfied with respect to such amendment.
|-8-||Purchase Agreement (USAA 2019-1)|
(b) This Agreement may also be amended from time to time by the Bank and the Purchaser, with the consent of the Holders of Notes evidencing not less than a majority of the Outstanding Note Balance of the Controlling Class, voting as a single class, for the purpose of adding any provisions to or changing in any manner or eliminating any of the provisions of this Agreement or of modifying in any manner the rights of the Noteholders. It will not be necessary for the consent of Noteholders to approve the particular form of any proposed amendment or consent, but it will be sufficient if such consent approves the substance thereof. The manner of obtaining such consents (and any other consents of Noteholders provided for in this Agreement) and of evidencing the authorization of the execution thereof by Noteholders will be subject to such reasonable requirements as the Indenture Trustee may prescribe, including the establishment of record dates pursuant to the Note Depository Agreement.
(c) Prior to the execution of any amendment pursuant to this Section 4.6, the Bank shall provide written notification of the substance of such amendment to each Rating Agency; and promptly after the execution of any such amendment or consent, the Bank shall furnish a copy of such amendment or consent to each Rating Agency and the Indenture Trustee; provided, that no amendment pursuant to this Section 4.6 shall be effective which affects the rights, protections or duties of the Indenture Trustee or the Owner Trustee without the prior written consent of such Person (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed).
(d) Prior to the execution of any amendment pursuant to this Section 4.6, the Owner Trustee and the Indenture Trustee shall be entitled to receive and conclusively rely upon an Opinion of Counsel stating that the execution of such amendment is authorized or permitted by this Agreement and that all conditions precedent to the execution and delivery of such amendment have been satisfied. The Owner Trustee and the Indenture Trustee may, but shall not be obligated to, enter into or execute on behalf of the Issuer any such amendment which adversely affects the Owner Trustees or the Indenture Trustees, as applicable, own rights, privileges, indemnities, duties or obligations under this Agreement.
SECTION 4.7 Waivers. No failure or delay on the part of the Purchaser, the Servicer, the Bank, the Issuer or the Indenture Trustee in exercising any power or right hereunder (to the extent such Person has any power or right hereunder) shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any such power or right preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other power or right. No notice to or demand on the Purchaser or the Bank in any case shall entitle it to any notice or demand in similar or other circumstances. No waiver or approval by either party under this Agreement shall, except as may otherwise be stated in such waiver or approval, be applicable to subsequent transactions. No waiver or approval under this Agreement shall require any similar or dissimilar waiver or approval thereafter to be granted hereunder.
SECTION 4.8 Entire Agreement. The Transaction Documents contain a final and complete integration of all prior expressions by the parties hereto with respect to the subject matter thereof and shall constitute the entire agreement among the parties hereto with respect to the subject matter thereof, superseding all prior oral or written understandings. There are no unwritten agreements among the parties hereto with respect to the subject matter hereof.
SECTION 4.9 Severability of Provisions. If any one or more of the covenants, agreements, provisions or terms of this Agreement shall be for any reason whatsoever held invalid, then such covenants, agreements, provisions or terms shall be deemed severable from the remaining covenants, agreements, provisions or terms of this Agreement and shall in no way affect the validity or enforceability of the other provisions of this Agreement.
|-9-||Purchase Agreement (USAA 2019-1)|
SECTION 4.10 Binding Effect. This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and permitted assigns. This Agreement shall create and constitute the continuing obligations of the parties hereto in accordance with its terms, and shall remain in full force and effect until such time as the parties hereto shall agree.
SECTION 4.11 Acknowledgment and Agreement. By execution below, the Bank expressly acknowledges and consents to the sale of the Purchased Assets and the assignment of all rights and obligations of the Bank related thereto by the Purchaser to the Issuer pursuant to the Sale and Servicing Agreement and the Grant of a security interest in the Receivables and the other Purchased Assets by the Issuer to the Indenture Trustee pursuant to the Indenture for the benefit of the Noteholders. In addition, the Bank hereby acknowledges and agrees that for so long as the Notes are outstanding, the Indenture Trustee will have the right to exercise all powers, privileges and claims of the Purchaser under this Agreement pursuant to the Grant of such security interest in the event that the Purchaser shall fail to exercise the same.
