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.

If you're considering a 2008 Dodge Magnum, there are a couple of other near-wagon alternatives worth looking at.

The Ford Taurus X is a crossover (really a tall-roof wagon) built on the same platform as the previous-generation Volvo XC90.

The Taurus X is bigger than the Magnum, but offers none of the Dodge's handling or V-8 performance potential.

Don't look to the 2008 Ford Taurus X for driving excitement, but otherwise, it's darn near the most perfect family wagon there is.
