Bank of America is preparing to jump into the consumer ABS issuance frenzy with a new deal from its rarely used Bank of America Auto Trust.

According to a Securities and Exchange Commission registration filed on Monday, the issuer is looking to follow up on its $2.3 billion auto deal issued in April 2012; prior to that deal, BofA last from its auto trust in 2010. 

The registration did not indicate how large the deal would be sized but it is expected to include four classes of A notes and one class of B notes.

The consumer ABS pipeline this week has been largely dominated by smaller issuance, with 11 new deals announced, for about a total of $5.8 billion, according to John McElravey, head of consumer ABS research at Wells Fargo.
