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 2011 Ford Flex does so much so well, it attracts plenty of rivals.

The Buick Enclave nearly hits the mark with a curvaceous charm, but its V-6 is throatier and its dash isn’t quite as well-fitted as that in the Flex.

The Honda Pilot used to be a family no-brainer, but the latest version ditches the glassy, anonymous look for a trucky take on utility that’s off-note—and covered inside with hard, unattractive plastic.

The Flex has a functional nemesis in the Chrysler Town & Country; the Flex oozes sophistication and comfort, but the Chrysler minivan’s sliding side doors and airy cabin are worth considering, at thousands less.

And if you’re contemplating the $55,000 sticker on a Flex Platinum, you may as well cross-shop a Range Rover Sport.

It’s nowhere near as convenient, but the swagger’s all there—right alongside dodgy reliability.

The 2011 Buick Enclave no longer feels fresh, but it's still one of the most luxurious, passenger-friendly, and uniquely American family crossover wagons.

If you can get past the garish grille and overwrought look, the 2011 Honda Pilot is a fine family vehicle, with minivan-like interior space and decent performance.

The 2011 Land Rover Range Rover Sport offers impressive performance and features, whether on-road or off.

With innovative features, families that need spaciousness and practicality should look at the 2010 Chrysler Town & Country—with plenty of entertainment and storage features, the only real downside is the isolated drive and some cheap-looking plastics on the inside.
