"Are owner's responsible for every aspect of maintence now? "

Yes, and they have been for almost the entire history of the automobile.

" If I have a flat on a bald tire and someone gets hit, am I responsible now"
Yes.

"If I take it to a mechanic and they sigh off on it, are they responsible?"
If it is reasonable for you to believe them? then they will be a fault.

"
What if my driverless car runs over a nail? "
The the car will detect it's losing pressure, and pull over.

" Who's fault is it then?"
Then it's just an accident and no one is at fault. Unless the nail was left with calamitous intent

The statement you quote could very well be correct. Pretty much everyone will be dead at 65MPH, so at 85 you can't get deader.,

It's like the falling cat question.
How com cats the fall 13 floors seem to live as much as cats that fall out of the 6th floor? Because almost no one takes a dead cat to the vet.

You are in the hall of the mountain king.
