Fitch Affirms Volkswagen Auto Loan Enhanced Trust 2012-1

NEW YORK--()--As part of its ongoing surveillance, Fitch Ratings affirms three classes of the Volkswagen Auto Loan Enhanced Trust 2012-1 transaction as follows:

--Class A-2 at 'AAAsf'; Outlook Stable;
--Class A-3 at 'AAAsf'; Outlook Stable;
--Class A-4 at 'AAAsf'; Outlook Stable.

The ratings are based on available credit enhancement and loss performance. The collateral pool continues to perform within Fitch's expectations. Under the credit enhancement structure, the securities are able to withstand stress scenarios consistent with the current ratings and make full payments to investors in accordance with the terms of the documents.

The ratings reflect the quality of Volkswagen Credit Inc. retail auto loan originations, the strength of its servicing capabilities, and the sound financial and legal structure of the transaction.
