>>…BillK, it's a critical question: does the car have a steering wheel or does
it not?  In the USA, it is aaaaalll about liability.  If the car has a
steering wheel and the autopilot screws up, the driver is liable.  If no
steering wheel, the company is at fault.  


>…At some point it won't be the company that is at fault, but the car itself.


Ja, but irrelevant.  Teams of hungry lawyers will not sue a car.  They will go after the company which built it.


If anyone owns a no-steering-wheel car, my sincere advice is never get near it with a wrench.  Never do anything which would cause you to hold any liability.
