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 is only one full-size competitor that can match the 2008 Kia Amanti when it comes to value and its warranty; that would be the 2008 Hyundai Azera.

Coincidence? The experts from think not.

Many automotive shoppers don't know that Kia and Hyundai are owned by the same Korean company.

This makes for some interesting shopping possibilities, as the Hyundai Azera provides an outstanding value that wears a much more contemporary (and stylish) shape.

Equipment levels, powertrains, and warranties are nearly identical between the two.

A soft ride and roomy interior still form the solid base for the 2009 Buick Lucerne’s appeal.

The 2008 Hyundai Azera gives the Korean automaker a legitimate full-size sedan, with plenty of power, features, and room, but not much excitement.
