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.

General Motors says it's rebuilding its once-strong position in mid-size cars, and the 2008 Chevrolet Malibu is a big part of that effort.

GM president Troy Clarke confirms the Malibu will appear at the 2007 Detroit auto show, and promises great things for the Malibu, which recently has been a lackluster mid-size offering mainly aimed at fleets. "[The Malibu] will re-establish the tradition of giving customers more bang for their buck ... great design, high style, and appointments that you wouldn't expect for the price," he said.

The introduction of new cars such as the Malibu and the replacement for the Cadillac CTS "will lead us to be known as a great car maker - not only as a great truck manufacturer that also happens to make cars. That's another key to improving our net sales," Clarke told the Automotive Press Association.

Chevrolet says the new Malibu features a dual-port grille that represents the "new face of Chevrolet." The mid-size Malibu will have a more upscale look and feature more premium materials, the company added. GM will invest $208 million in its Fairfax, Kansas assembly plant to prepare for the production of the Malibu.
