CHICAGO--()--Fitch Ratings affirms John Deere Owner Trusts (JDOT) 2012 as follows:

--Class A-2 affirmed at 'AAAsf'; Outlook Stable;

--Class A-3 affirmed at 'AAAsf'; Outlook Stable;

--Class A-4 affirmed at 'AAAsf'; Outlook Stable.

The affirmation of the class A notes in the transaction reflects loss coverage levels consistent with current ratings. As of the January 2013 reporting period, cumulative net losses totaled 3 bps and are forecasting below Fitch's initial base case proxy.

The Stable Outlook for all classes reflects Fitch's expectation for loss coverage and credit enhancement to continue to improve as the transaction amortizes.
