Re: So I'm liable for my Volkswagon exceeding CO2 emissions?
You can be if you mess with the pollution control systems.
But that was the point of the article - the insurer is on the hook for safety, so long as you install upgrades.
But you are responsible if the automated car breaks the law.
i suppose you are currently legally responsible if your phone doesn't meet CE/FCC regs - but I can't imagine a regular owner being prosecuted because the manufacturer had a bug in the modem
