It says to rely on Facebook messenger, so I'm hesitate to share data with FB.

I won't use anything that utilizes Facebook or Facebook Messenger.

Do you have a citation for this connection to FB Messenger? This is the first I've heard of that.

What are they thinking? Do they have any knowledge on how their customers feel about FB and FBM?

Wait - they’re trying to slipstream Facebook into the car??? First Amazon, then the announcement of the Google “partnership”. Now Facebook? Facebook? Are the people at Ford Motor Company smoking crack????
@Ford Motor Company could you please reiterate your privacy policy, and use very simple words and short sentences, because it certainly seems to me that you’re turning your customers into huge data sets that are being sold off to some of the least reputable organizations around. Who’s next? Russia? North Korea?

I'm confused why messenger is even involved. Does this use a Facebook backend or something? They've gotta have some kind of justification for this (even if it's a thin one). What functionality are they claiming they need from Facebook?
