See How Well Your Car Crashes

This is a little creepy but also pretty neat.

Consumer Reports will show you what happens when your car crashes. Choose a make, model and year and then they'll load up a video crash test for your viewing discomfort.

Our Ford Escape does okay in the front offset impact test but scores a rather scary Poor in the side impact test (on the model without side impact airbags) although the rear passenger compartment fairs well.

And then the video wraps up with an ad to subscribe to Consumer Reports for more info. Not a bad argument really.

How does your car score?

Does it make you want to go get a tank?
