TCC Rating
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 Ford may never call it a wagon for marketing reasons, but the 2009 Ford Taurus X is just that—practical, convenient, safe, and quite possibly one of the best wagons ever produced. The attractive 2009 Saturn Outlook is a large, comfortable utility vehicle built with families in mind.
