Apparently if you call the service line without discussing it with the dealer they can't do anything for you. So I want to make sure I've followed all the steps.

I took a co-worker for a ride yesterday to get lunch and I had never mentioned my car issues to him. We got caught in traffic and I had to progress slowly till we cleared the accident. The car jerked and bucked the entire time and my co-worker asked me if the car was supposed to do that. At least I'm not imagining things with the way the car is.

Why wouldn't you worry about it? A brand new car stalling is something you should be worried about.

the svc manager doesn't know what he's talking about.. I drive often in stop and go traffic and never experienced this... tell him he's way out of order on this one.!
