Lolz i guess it varies with different cars, one i rented still roll down pretty fast, nowadays some comes with gear shifter (i.e with - & + sign)

so do you simply off engine once it rolls down at suitable speed?
did some reading, and it seems that scooter CVT will unlock & freewheel once rpm drops below certain threshold
U try hehuanshan lor.
Then u may advise better.
What car did u rent?
I rented a ford fiesta from Avis.
Nowadays usually pay more than usual.
More comfort in the car than jap car.

I did. Shitiping is a must go! Absolutely gorgeous! Can go to the 水往上流 place and tropic of cancer which are both nearby. The ride there is pretty good too!

You don't exactly need an idp for renting a scooter in Taiwan.
