Also, "obsolete" is a given. When you buy your car it's already obsolete. There are new features, new tech, already in the works for the next year's models (perhaps even two years out).

Not sure about your NYC example. A divided highway with no cross-streets should be a lot easier than city streets with pedestrians, cyclists, drivers trying to change lanes at the last second, "men at work" signs, etc.

Just my intuition.

I'm less optimistic than you, regardless. After seeing the NOVA about autonomous driving, I think we're a really long way off from that. Maybe on interstates where all the traffic is going the same direction. But I never really appreciated how complex of a task is driving until I saw the program. We humans do it with ease (mostly), but trying to get a machine to do it is immensely difficult. If you haven't seen it, it's a great program. Well worth watching if you're at all interested in the topic.
