My wife's 2004 Highlander has it. At speeds above 50, if you touch the brake pedal for a few seconds, the transmission shifts from 5th to 4th and provides an additional engine braking effect. Otherwise it feels like it's free wheeling when going downhill.
Never having owned an automatic Subaru, I can't speak to this feature on the 4EAT or the 5EAT on the Legacy/Outback.
