The instruction manuals for many MBs tell you to coast in neutral in some circumstances. Admittedly, this is only when tow-starting or hill-starting the car. Did you know that was possible with an MB automatic? You have to do 45 - 50 km/h, and then move it into 'D', but if it doesn't start in a few seconds, should move it back.
