Manufacturers should be liable

It seems to me that the costs and fines imposed by any accident caused by the fault of an automated car should be paid for by the manufacturer of the automated car not the owners insurance company. The manufacturer needs to ensure that the car can handle any situation safely and also be hack proof. If something fails then they should be liable just like in the airline industry.
