So I save wear/tear on the brakes.

I don't care as much what happens to the CVT because its part of the life-time warranty.

My main concern was gas mileage. If I am unable to coast properly, maybe there is something wrong with the engine causing drag. I do hope this lessens over time.

I believe, as its been stated is its apart of being a cvt! Mine did this, the one I test drove did it, and one my brother test drove did it...its just how its been designed I guess...if you keep your foot on the pedal but VERY lightly pressing down you kinda coast...its like s a sweet spot...
