does it keep doin' this? could it have been a bit of bad gas? (have had it myself) Your tank near empty...don't let it get this way, the fuel pump needs cooling and fuel to cool it.~

There's a recall on the ignition switch on these, the ignition doesn't hold the key in the "Run" position strong enough. If you have a lot of keys attached to your ignition key, it can have enough swinging movement to turn the key back to the "accessory" position by itself, which will shut down the engine. I experienced this myself while backing out of a parking space in a parking lot (I was fortunate it happened then and not in traffic). Check with your dealer, they replaced the ignition detent module in mine for free.
