Get out of it. You'll probably have to smash the window in order to do this, as the force of water against a car door even 1/3 of the way up the door will be too much for you to be able to open the door.

Can liquids conduct thermal energy?

Yes, all of them do. The most common liquid that conducts thermal energy is, of course, water. We put water - with a little ethylene glycol (anti-freeze) - into the radiator of your car. When you start the car, the engine gets hot, because of the gasoline and air exploding in each cylinder. Water running through the cooling manifold picks up the heat and cools the engine. The water runs through the heater core of your car and some of the heat is transferred to the air blowing into your car. The water then goes back into the radiator, and the heat from the water is transferred to the air going through the radiator. The now-cooled water goes back through the engine.
