Should I need to Rev match or should it do this automatically? I have gathered that if I wait a couple of seconds before accelerating after switching back into D that it should be fine with no problems. Just would like a little input before doing this. I know a lot of people coast, but does it have negative effects on the transmission? I plan on keeping this car for a very very long time and would hate to have premature transmission failure.
The only way you might cause damage is by turning the engine off while coasting in neutral.
