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?

Just had this happen today to my 2013 Rio. Did you ever find the problem?
