If there's no human involvement in driving and by extension, no human caused mistakes, why would there be a need for auto insurance?

onus of responsibility would be on the vehicle manufacturer by way of product warranty

And that's going to be a mess, they already have teams of lawyers/specialists to protect the manufacturer from recalls, fines and lawsuits. It all comes down to risk and who's willing to take it on.

You think insurance companies are gonna let that happen? They're multi billion dollar entities, they're not gonna let their cash cow wither up and die that easy.

Okay, insurance is someone else taking on the risk of something happening. If all vehicles on the road are self driving and there's no risk of incidents on the roads, why wouldn't the auto insurance not just go away? I don't think they will just go away, but the rates would/should be so cheap on self driving cars that it'd be pointless to insure them. It a slippery slope, and they spend millions on lobbyists all across the country that will be paid to ensure they don't go out of business.

Personally, I think there's something shady going on behind the scenes we don't know about with self driving cars. It all seems way to convenient with so many pluses and so little negatives that have been made public.
