to prolong brake life is a stupid reason to do this, 1. because there is no brake wear anyway and 2. brakes are cheap and transmissions are not..

now on the subject of shifting into neutral, once I read in a service station that shifting into neutral at lights was good for your torque converter because you didn't have that constant push on the driveltrain creating extra heat and everything,,

I did it with my old 2000 Camaro all the time, partially because I hated holding my foot on the brake for 5 minutes waiting for a light and because I thought I was helping the transmission.,

a few week ago I read about this online and concluded that it is not good for the transmission because you're only putting more wear on the tranny by making it shift in & out of gear every time.

I only used to do it because I hated having to hold the brake pedal for 5 minutes waiting for a light, in fact if I knew it was a long light I would just put it in park.

even if I was in a traffic jam and going down hill, I would put it in neutral and just coast down hill to avoid all that shifting.

so it does make sense in some cases.
