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
Low gear until sibeh slow.
Pek chek until dulan.

personally still prefer to go by airport MRT, more spacious, can stretch & no traffic jam

traveling in car, no matter how luxury it looks still feels caged up
Taipei City to Airport is 1000twd or at least 900 twd ...
about $ 40.50

researching for my taipei trip ...
If buy from klook, using camry sedan ...
price is about $36.80

or can co-share with others, one person is about $13.30
taking bus or airport train is about $7+ already ...

What car did u rent?
I rented a ford fiesta from Avis.

More comfort in the car than jap car.
