It always happened when the car was neither hot nor cold. The last time it happened to me I drove for about 5 minutes, shut the car off to go into a store, and when I came back out to start it the rpms were hovering around 300 for a few seconds before it died.
Every time it was a similar story. The frequency of it occurring increased with time. During the 3rd visit to the service department they were able to replicate it many times and it even did it on start up after they "fixed" it and I came to pick it up!
