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 A cramped rear seat and sluggish performance tarnish the otherwise rugged-lux credentials of the 2009 Lexus GX 470. The 2008 Land Rover LR3 is hard to justify for fashion alone, but if you're living an off-road lifestyle, it's one of the best.
