I don't think it's a good idea to coast in neutral with an automatic, because the atf isn't being pumped everywhere including the propeller shaft, I mean if this is done all the time it could hurt the output area since there isn't any type of lubrication going back there and you'd have heat building up. Unless of course i'm mistaken about the way subaru auto transmissions work (which I probably am) isn't that the same reason they have to get dollies for the rear wheels when towing any car that isn't fwd or stick?
