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.

There are SUV alternatives that offer better on-road behavior than the H3.

The Toyota FJ Cruiser is styled almost as cartoonishly as the 2008 HUMMER H3 and has outward visibility that is just as stifled.

The FJ is almost as capable off the road, but a bit more civil on the pavement.

The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited comes close to matching the HUMMER H3's on-road feel while still nearly matching the H3 on trails.

More civilized and practical SUVs include the Toyota 4Runner that also offers V-8 power, and the Nissan Xterra that doesn't.

Unless you love the style or genuinely value the off-road capabilities of the 2008 HUMMER H3, it doesn’t realistically make a very good everyday SUV.

TCC Rating
The 2008 Jeep Wrangler is a one-of-a-kind vehicle: an extreme off-road convertible with the on-road handling and ride of--well, a true off-roader.

For active people who need to tow or haul a lot of gear or go off-road, the 2008 Nissan Xterra is one of the best—and best-looking—choices.

TCC Rating
The 2008 Toyota 4Runner isn’t as roomy or as efficient as newer crossover designs, but if you need towing or off-road capabilities, it’s a good, safe choice.

TCC Rating
Retro-coolness, off-roading, and practicality don’t come together as well in any other vehicle as they do in the 2008 Toyota FJ Cruiser.
