I was told (long ago, so maybe designs have changed) that it wasn't good for the transmission to coast in neutral, or tow the car with the drive wheels on the ground.

PS: Yes, I'm assuming automatic transmission here, from neutral/reverse being next to each other. I know there were once manual transmissions with column-mounted shift levers (family had one when I was a kid), but I don't recall ever having driven one.
