NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- As part of its ongoing surveillance, Fitch Ratings affirms the ratings for six classes of the CarMax Auto Owner Trust 2011-3 transaction and revises Rating Outlooks as follows:
--Class A-2 at 'AAAsf'; Outlook Stable;
--Class A-3 at 'AAAsf'; Outlook Stable;
--Class A-4 at 'AAAsf'; Outlook Stable;
--Class B at 'AAsf'; Outlook to Positive from Stable;
--Class C at 'Asf'; Outlook to Positive from Stable;
--Class D at 'BBBsf'; Outlook to Positive from Stable.
The rating affirmations 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 rating and make full payments to investors in accordance with the terms of the documents.
Additionally, Fitch has revised the Outlooks for the class B, C, and D notes. This reflects the possibility for positive rating actions in the next six to 12 months as losses are tracking inside of initial expectations and credit support is expected to continue to increase. Fitch will continue to closely monitor this transaction and may take additional rating actions in the event of changes in performance and credit enhancement measures.
The ratings reflect the quality of CarMax Business Services LLC retail auto loan originations, the strength of its servicing capabilities, and the sound financial and legal structure of the transaction.
Additional information is available at 'www.fitchratings.com'. The ratings above were solicited by, or on behalf of, the issuer, and therefore, Fitch has been compensated for the provision of the ratings.
