Yet, somehow, they've managed to be just fine for decades with self-flying planes.  If terrorists really wanted to hack a vehicle to crash it, it would be a plane (maybe a train).

Did you ever wonder what ever happened to the industry known as "private aviation". Why isn't everyone flying his own airplane? I speculate it was the insurance industry and the gummint both suffering from and creating paranoia about millions of half-trained nitwits filling the sky with sheet metal (about half of the cost of small airplane rental, and it's expensive, is insurance). Now, "they" are losing sleep over the possibility of removing the nitwit from control of his car (far more likely to collide than an airplane). It's about having something to say, and extracting money from us, about everything we do. It's not "thuh terrorists", it's about extorting and controlling  -- us.

I think you might have that thing set on "Full Potato", you could probably dial it back a bit.

The FBI also worries that not having to hold the steering wheel will give criminals a big advantage. "Bad actors will be able to conduct tasks that require use of both hands or taking one's eyes off the road which would be impossible today."

Shhhhhhhh, no body tell Al Qaeda what that other seat on the right side of the car is for.

I continue to wonder about such warnings.  Why the need for warnings?

Now some terrorist group is out there saying "Say, that's not a bad idea". (use your own accent).

"Terrorists" is just a cover for "anyone but us".

Don't worry, they'll warm up to the idea when they realize they can require all cars to be built with an override that automatically pulls them over when a cop hits a button and there's nothing the person inside can do about it.

Yah, like terrorists can't figure out how to catch a bus or a cab or have an accomplice drive.
