There are settings in the app to control this.

Android Auto itself does not automatically respond to text messages, but provides an option to respond with a canned message. It requires you to action that each time though.
If your phone is auto-responding then it will be an option in the messaging app or part of a "driving mode" add-on the phone maker provides.

As far as I can tell, you're all wrong. I have a  Pixel 3, and when Android Auto is on, it auto-replies all SMS text messages. It will let me customize the auto-reply text, but will not let me turn off the auto-reply. I don't like the assumption that I have to reply to all text messages immediately, unless I'm driving. I'll reply when I'm good and ready. It's frankly a bit presumptuous. I would like to turn it off, and I don't think I can.

I've a samsung S10 with the same problem. When the phone is connected to the car via bluetooth it will auto respond to WhatsApp messages. I changed the auto response and android auto sent the reply without a prompt from me. When the phone is connected via a.cable to the car then messaging works perfectly.
