It is strange for a RWD to do it though. My wife's FWD 13 Malibu does this.

Not at all. Just coming home from work earlier, I was making a left turn onto the main avenue. I was going about 30 mph and took my foot off the gas to carefully make the turn, I immediately felt the transmission dragging down the speed of the car even though I had no intention of slowing down but rather accelerating once I was onto the main avenue. Gas has nothing to do with it. I think it is a flaw in the transmission firmware.

JCC11: I have a Mercedes with its ZF 7 speed transmission. It is a high quality, hi performance, hi tech transmission and it coasts perfectly when your foot lifts off the gas pedal. There is no drag as the Chrysler tranny exhibits. I find it unpleasant in the Ram.
