    Thank you for visiting the Subaru Web site and for your message. We appreciate that you took the time to convey your thoughts to us. Your comments will be forwarded to our Marketing Department for their review.

    Our marketing strategy is one of targeting customers that appreciate the safety, control, and confidence that the Subaru All Wheel Driving systems provides. Our customers appreciate the adventure and fun that these vehicle attributes allow them to experience. Subaru has a very well educated owner base that celebrates, embraces, and appreciates diversity. Subaru markets vehicles to people who appreciate a safe and reliable value in the automotive category. Subaru does not pass judgement on peoples personal lives. We market vehicles to mountain bikers, skiers, nurses, teachers, rowers, campers, scientists, kayakers, and gays and lesbians.

    Have a great New Year!

    Sincerely,

    John J. Mergen

    Subaru of America, Inc.
