ITEM 6.01. ABS Informational and Computational Material.


Information concerning the static pool data of previous similar loan securitizations of American Honda Finance Corporation, as sponsor, for the issuance period commencing January 1, 2012 and ending September 30, 2017 is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 pursuant to Item 1105 of Regulation AB. We caution you that the pool of receivables in your trust may not perform in a similar manner to the receivables in other trusts.


The information in Exhibit 99.1 consists of summary information about the original characteristics of the prior securitized pools, cumulative net losses, prepayments and delinquency data for the prior securitized pools and graphical presentation of the data.  The characteristics of receivables included in Exhibit 99.1, as well as the social, economic and other conditions existing at the time when those receivables were originated and repaid, may vary materially from the characteristics of the receivables in other trusts and the social, economic and other conditions existing at the time when the receivables in a particular transaction are originated and those that will exist in the future when the receivables in a particular transaction are required to be repaid. As a result, there can be no assurance that the static pool data will correspond to or be an accurate predictor of the performance of any particular receivables securitization transaction.


American Honda Finance Corporation (“AHFC”) will continue to report delinquencies and cumulative net losses for its prior asset-backed securitizations to align with AHFC’s reporting for its entire portfolio of new and used Honda and Acura retail installment sale contracts (the “New Reporting Method”). Under the New Reporting Method, AHFC will report a receivable to be current (not delinquent) upon receipt of at least 90% of the sum of the current payment plus any overdue monthly payments. In static pool reports filed before the calendar year 2016, AHFC reported a receivable as delinquent if 100% of the current payment plus any overdue monthly payment was not made when due. Additionally, in pre-2016 static pool reports, AHFC reported a receivable as delinquent for the remaining life of a receivable if a contract extension was granted on that receivable. Under the New Reporting Method, AHFC will not report contract extensions as delinquent if payments are made pursuant to the terms of the contract extension. The New Reporting Method results in fewer receivables being reported as delinquent and fewer net losses being reported as compared to pre-2016 static pool reports. The New Reporting Method is consistent with how AHFC recognizes delinquencies and losses with respect to its entire managed portfolio.


For purposes of the following static pool information, calculations for the New Reporting Method are included, along with calculations under the prior system guidelines for comparison. Securitization transactions beginning with Honda Auto Receivables 2016-1 Owner Trust will only be reported under the New Reporting Method.
