Wifi lets you tether the car to a phone and get traffic, weather, and gas prices for $70/year.

While Facebook was shown in the reveal video that feature isn't currently available.

I don't have the car yet, but as far as I know you can use AHA Radio App for social media functions like Facebook and Twitter. I installed AHA on my Android phone and there is a function for Facebook in it...

Well I have A Windows Phone, while the phone itself is great I occasionally miss out on specific apps or app integration. I can't comment on if this will work or not. That said what I'm referencing is in the reveal videos Facebook was shown as a standalone app on the infotainment system.

If you look at this video on 1:11 you can clearly see the AHA logo on top left

No offense but if you are driving a car you shouldn't be messing with Facebook!
