    A stupid question out of curiosity … in this case, who will bear the responsibility and cover the cost of damage?

    The dealer, because it is the registered owner of the vehicle. The dealer can try to claim money back from the driver but will unlikely do so, it was after all a customer. Furthermore, dealers usually have a special insurance for exactly this kind of accident.
