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.

In its current form, the 2008 Chrysler 300 faces off against a variety of sedans.

The base, Limited, and Touring models of the 300 can be compared to domestic competitors including the Mercury Montego and Buick Lucerne.

Compared to the Chrysler, these domestic sedans are wallflowers and have all the visual excitement of a nicely presented bowl of oatmeal.

Dynamically, the 300 feels more athletic than these cars as well.

Of particular interest to some, the Montego offers all-wheel drive, and while the Buick doesn't, it is available with V-8 power.

A soft ride and roomy interior still form the solid base for the 2009 Buick Lucerne’s appeal.

The 5-Series sedans and wagons aren't the most practical or the best values in their class, but they're very enjoyable to drive.
