Recently, my Subaru started giving off a noise (grating noise like metal against metal sound) when I begin to slow down and take my foot off the accelerator. If I keep the car at a steady speed (any speed), the sound goes away but if I free wheel the noise returns. Another way of eliminating the noise when I want to slow down is to press the brake while at the same time still keep slight pressure on the accelerator. Does anyone have any ideas what might cause this? The engine has a 125,000 on it and the car has been well maintained all along. Thanks.

My best guess - loose exhaust heat shield.

While not typical, it might be an issue with a bearing or brakes. You can rule those out easily by lifting each corner and spinning the wheel in turn. Being AWD, make sure you put it in neutral and block the (other) tires.
