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.

Our expert editors build comparisons like this one to make it easy for you to understand the small handful of cars you should compare to whatever car you are already looking at. You get general thoughts on each car you should consider plus an easy way to compare basic information for yourself.

Gas prices...gas prices, moan, complain...woe are we.

This is a good time to ask yourself whether you really need a full-size, truck-based SUV.

Well, do you? Do you need to tow more than three tons? Do you need a maximum payload of over 1,500 pounds? If you answered no to these questions, they why are you even thinking of wasting this truck's capabilities on commuting or people-hauling? There are less costly and more efficient vehicles out there for those jobs, including crossovers, minivans, and even the 2009 Ford Flex (we don't know what to call that vehicle yet).

Competitors to the 2009 Nissan Armada offer roomier interiors and better options, but the Armada should be commended for its handsome looks and powerful V-8 engine.

The 2008 Toyota Sequoia is a capable example of the full-size SUV--in a day where the full-size SUV makes less and less sense.
