Brett:  While the continuation of your explaination covers this, I'd be 
willing to bet the electrics would short out under water, so unless the driver had 
the presence of mind after impact to "put down the windows", I'd say its wait 
for the cabin to fill up so the equallized pressure allows a door to open.  
(one that's not damaged in the impact.)

Granted you'd "swim" out the window if you got it down.  No expirence, but I 
did watch Fear Factor
