Nope. You are just refusing to see a few steps ahead in the future. Actually you are talking about the future at all, you are stuck in the present.You are.
If autonomous cars vastly out number manually driven cars, then manually driven cars are going to be significantly cheaper that it is even more practical to use conventional cars.

No, because of the reduced costs and it becomes even more easier for a terrorist to use a car bomb and not kill himself/herself along with it. It doesn't have to be an SUV sized car just a small two seater will do.
Maybe something like this.
Saw this video today on facebook.
I wonder how soon it will be before one of these is fitted with a machine gun. What if one of these was built or stolen for use in terrorism? In a densely populated city, how long could one of these roam freely gunning people down before police or military could stop it?
That might seem paranoid, but in an age where human beings are already gunning people down en mass on a fairly regular basis, it seems highly plausible that if this technology were to proliferate, they'll use machines to accomplish the same goals, but probably with much greater effects.
