Just got off the phone with the service guy at my dealership. He said the exact same thing you guys said: it should not be able to turn off in motion -it's a safety feature. They told me to bring in the car Monday after work and they would get me a rental free of charge, and that it should be fixed the next day.
I'm glad it will be fixed, i'm just still frustrated that something like this could go wrong with a brand new car. One of the reasons I bought a brand new car was for the peace of mind that nothing would go wrong. Hopefully it's the only issue with my car.

Also I've been worrying about my MPG. It's hard to believe it can get up to 40mpg on highway. Granted I do mostly city driving, but my cars total "career" mpg so far is 25 mpg... is that something I should think about asking about when I bring to dealer?
Also, I need an oil change. Would it make sense to ask them to do it at the same time? Thanks.
