I'm having the same problem with my 2011 Kia Soul. It has now died several times while I have been driving, almost exclusively when in neutral (it's a manual), i.e. when I'm going down a hill or on an off-ramp. It usually starts right back up, but the tachometer doesn't work, and it doesn't drive properly, it sputters and has trouble accelerating. When I turn the car off and turn it back on, everything works again. Any thoughts on what could be causing it?
