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.

The Mustang is a perennial player in the muscle car segment.

Unlike the Challenger and Camaro, the Mustang never went out of production.

Comparing today's models, the 2008 Mustang is nowhere near as large as the 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8.

You can seat three in back in a Dodge; don't try that in the current Mustang or the upcoming 2010 Camaro, which we bring up here even though it doesn't go on sale until 2009.

If you like your muscle with additional practicality, perhaps the four-door Pontiac G8 GT is more up your alley.

It has a rumbling V-8 and rear-wheel drive to boot, and a new 402-hp version with a manual transmission is on the way for 2009.

The G8 gives Pontiac real sport-sedan credentials and hits the mark with only minor faults.
