Coasting in an automatic car
I recently purchased my first automatic car, Maruti suzuki Astar. I have always been compelled to shift to neutral especially when I am coming down from a flyover (or) approaching traffic signal.
Is coasting possible in an automatic car? Does coasting in neutral damage the auto transmission? There is no engine braking in my car, so there is never really an increase in braking efficiency while being in shorter gears.
