How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.

TCC's Bottom Line With the best flexibility and infotainment in the minivan world, the 2014 Dodge Grand Caravan also satisfies families with great safety scores and good gas mileage. The Nissan Quest may drive well, but its below-average seating and safety put it behind the rest of the minivan options on the road today.
