Why does Subaru constantly change...
 
grill design and lack a strong image through the grill? BMW, Pontiac and some other auto companies have identifiable designs. The bad part is that Subaru seems to be trying to create one, but keeps failing.

LAMO, good one!

I really couldn't specualte why. The grille does give the cars some brand identity, but like Dodge's crosshair grille, people get sick of seeing the same thing all the time. People want something unique. As long as the six star emblem remains the same I think it is a good idea to mix it up. My personal favorite is the hawk eye WRX's.

Because their marketing and design teams realized you don't like it.

Is it good or bad when people can't id a Subaru? Seems like some type theme would be good, but not all companies have one.

People don't know what the Subaru logo looks like anyway even though it's been around for forever. I've had people ask me why I bought a Scion before.

Subaru has a marketing department??? I thought they contracted that out to a group of monkeys!?!

That's "success" coming from a negative person like you. :)

The nose grille was when Andreas Zapatinas, former alfa designer was head of subaru design.
