Eats rear tires

2007 Subaru Outback 2.5i Basic 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
Review
I've owned four Subaru's. The quality of each successive Subaru has declined. Recently, I discovered that the Outback eats rear tires - $1000 worth of (80K) tires in 35K miles. After taking it to a dealer, I got the sales pitch answer, "We're a small dealership, but we are unaware of a problem". So I proceeded to Les Schab. They told me that they aware of four other Subaru's with the same problem. Also, the problem is well documented on the internet. I'm a licensed mechanical engineer and I've owned my last Subaru as I've lost trust in Subaru as a company. I can understand design problems - but not acknowledging the problem and taking responsibility for it is unacceptable.

Suggested Improvements
Fix the tire eating problem. Acknowledge problems when discovered and accept responsibility. If not, I suspect Subaru will be out of business in five years.
