I had it die on me, once, going down the highway. It seems to only act up when I downshift in order to pass someone or climb a steep hill. Almost seems 'weak' at times. The one time it did die on me, was climbing a hill. Then it started back up, and died instantly. Once I got it going after a few tries, it hasn't died since.
Also at times, it seems that it needs to crank for a few more seconds before starting right up.
