Take this for example.

Sounds like a pretty safe car, if you were foolish enough to take this as fact you could think you were a smart consumer finding out information about a car before you buy it, and you would be happy with your new car purchuse untill you get in an accident and find out the results are probably closer to the ones below.
My favorite part was this.
"RESTRAINTS/DUMMY KINEMATICS: POOR In the first test, dummy movement was reasonably well controlled, although the dummy's head did strike the steering wheel through the frontal airbag. During rebound, the deployed side airbag kept the dummy's head away from the B-pillar. In the second test, the frontal airbag deployed late (76 milliseconds, compared with a typical 30 milliseconds), and the dummy's head hit the steering wheel. Also, the driver seat came loose on one of its tracks and moved forward 3 inches on the right side, where the safety belt is anchored. Both of the dummy's legs jammed against the instrument panel. The left shin contacted an exposed metal edge, and the right knee hit just below the ignition switch, producing gashes in the vinyl "skin" at the dummy's left shin and right knee. During rebound, the deployed side airbag kept the dummy's head away from the B-pillar. In the third test, the frontal airbag also deployed late (64 milliseconds), and the dummy's head struck the steering wheel through the airbag. The side airbag did not deploy in this test, and during rebound the dummy's head hit the B-pillar."
