|Legal Matters- Validity of the Notes:|
|In the opinion of counsel to Ally Financial Inc. (the “Company”), when the notes offered by this pricing supplement have been executed and issued by the Company and authenticated by the trustee pursuant to the indenture dated as of September 24, 1996, with The Bank of New York Mellon (as successor to JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A.), as trustee (the “Trustee”), as amended and supplemented from time to time (the “Indenture”), and delivered against payment as contemplated herein, such notes will be valid and binding obligations of the Company, subject to applicable bankruptcy, insolvency and similar laws affecting creditors’ rights generally, concepts of reasonableness and equitable principles of general applicability, and provided that I express no opinion as to (i) the enforceability of any waiver of rights under any usury or stay law, (ii) the effect of fraudulent conveyance, fraudulent transfer or similar provision of applicable law on the conclusions expressed above and (ii) the validity, legally binding effect or enforceability of any provision that permits holders to collect any portion of stated principal amount upon acceleration of the notes to the extent determined to constitute unearned interest. This opinion is given as of the date hereof and is limited to Federal laws of the United States of America, the law of the State of New York and the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware. In addition, this opinion is subject to customary assumptions about the Trustee’s authorization, execution and delivery of the Indenture, the Trustee’s authentication of the notes, and the validity, binding nature and enforceability of the Indenture with respect to the Trustee, and the genuineness of signatures and to such counsel’s reliance on the Company and other sources as to certain factual matters, all as stated in the letter of such counsel dated August 24, 2012, which has been filed as Exhibit 5.1 to the Registration Statement.|
