      >Dear Mr. Tilton,

      >I am writing to express my disappointment with your company's decision to
      >make changes in your Outback car model in order to evade higher fuel
      >economy standards. This is the exact opposite direction the automobile
      >industry should be going, as technological improvements should be leading
      >vehicles to improve pollution and fuel-economy performance.

      >A recent report by the Union of Concerned Scientists showed that with "off
      >the shelf" technologies, a standard mid-sized SUV could meet the current
      >CAFE standards for cars, thereby rendering the already artificial
      >distinction between car and light truck standards inconsequential. For
      >Subaru to take its Outback model, long seen as an attractive and more
      >efficient alternative to oil-thirsty SUVs, and change it to avoid the
      >responsibility of producing cleaner vehicles for the American consumer, is
      >unconscionable.

      >Due to this decision, I will leave Subaru out of my future vehicle
      >purchasing plans, and will be letting my friends know about the
      >environmentally irresponsible step Subaru has taken. I would like to know
      >what steps your company plans to take in order to rebuild its
      >environmentally conscious reputation.
