MMCA Auto Owner Trust 1999-1 (the "Trust") was formed on October 1, 1999
pursuant to a Trust Agreement (the "Trust Agreement"), dated as of
October 1, 1999, between MMCA Auto Receivables Trust, as depositor
("MART"), and Wilmington Trust Company, as owner trustee.  Pursuant
to the Trust Agreement, the Trust issued certificates evidencing an
interest in the trust property (the "Certificates").  The Certificates
are held by MMCA Auto Receivables Trust and Mitsubishi Motors Credit
of America, Inc.

Pursuant to an Indenture, dated as of October 1, 1999, between the
Trust, as issuer, and Bank of Tokyo - Mitsubishi Trust Company, as
indenture trustee (the "Indenture Trustee"), the Trust issued asset-backed
notes (the "Notes").  The Notes consist of four classes (the "6.30%
Class A-1 Asset Backed Notes," "6.80% Class A-2 Asset Backed Notes,
" "7.00% Class A-3 Asset Backed Notes" and "7.55% Class B Asset Backed
Notes").  The 6.30% Class A-1 Asset Backed Notes, 6.80% Class A-2 Asset
Backed Notes, 7.00% Class A-3 Asset Backed Notes and 7.55% Class B
Asset Backed Notes were registered and publicly offered and sold.

The assets of the Trust primarily include a pool of motor vehicle
retail installment sale contracts originated by Mitsubishi Motors
Credit of America, Inc. ("MMCA") and secured by new and used motor
vehicles and light trucks.  The Trust's business activities include
acquiring and holding the assets of the Trust, issuing the Notes,
the Certificates and the Final Payment Certificate and distributing
payments on the Notes, the Certificates and the Final Payment Certificate.

Pursuant to a Sale and Servicing Agreement, dated as of October 1, 1999,

to the level payments due each month on the Trust's motor vehicle
retail installment sale contracts but does not include the delinquency

period of delinquency is based on the number of days for which more
than 10% of a level payment is contractually past due, and the
delinquency rate as a percentage of the balance outstanding represents
delinquent dollars as a percentage of dollars outstanding.

Exhibit 99.2

Report on Management's Assertion on Compliance with
Minimum Servicing Standards Set Forth in the
Uniform Single Attestation Program for Mortgage Bankers


                Independent Accountants' Report

To the Board of Directors and Shareholder
Mitsubishi Motors Credit of America, Inc.

We have examined management's assertion, included in the accompanying
report tiltled Report of Management,  that Mitsubishi Motors
Credit of America, Inc. (MMCA) complied with the minimum servicing
standards set forth in the Mortgage Bankers Association of America's
Uniform Single Attestation Program for Mortgage Bankers (USAP)
except for minimum servicing standards I.4, III.3, III.4, V.2, V.3,
and V.4, which are inapplicable to servicing automobile loans,
during the year ended December 31, 1999, included in the accompanying
report titled Report of Management. Management is responsible for
MMCA's compliance with those requirements. Our responsibility is to
express an opinion on management's assertion about MMCA's compliance
based on our examination.

Our examination was made in accordance with standards established by
the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and,
accordingly, included examining, on a test basis, evidence about
MMCA's compliance with those requirements and performing such other
procedures as we considered necessary in the circumstances. We believe
that our examination provides a reasonable basis for our opinion. Our
examination does not provide a legal determination on MMCA's
compliance with specified requirements.

In our opinion, management's assertion that MMCA complied with the
aforementioned requirements during the year ended December 31, 1999,
is fairly stated, in all material respects.
