In the mad rush for autonomous vehicles these manufacturers will cut corners.
When someone gets killed they will deny responsibility and will attempt to ignore, slander and sue any complainant. They will drag their heels when it comes to costly fixes and recalls, when a model is upgraded no more updates will be forthcoming.
When finally they are forced to admit they have been lying and cheating all along the Chairman/CEO will resign with a fat payoff, lots of underpaid pressurised employees will be sacked and the shareholders will carry the bag.
Forgive my cynicism, these issues are not the preserve of the motor industry, they are a direct result of corporate culture and this time (autonomous vehicles) will not be different.
