Exclamation Manual Drivers, Power LOSS while driving.

Alright so i was just driving around and all the sudden, all power was lost.... no acceleration to be found and the whole car went in limp mode, as if i was trying to take off in 5th gear from a dead stop. this was true in all 5 gears.... just no acceleration at all with the pedal to the floor and every position in between. i limped it home and for S&G's, i shut it off and turned the car back on... viola, back to normal.

This puzzles me, absolutely no warning light, chime or message on the base models info screen. when i pulled over to look under the hood.. no smoke, leaks or abnormal noises. Just smelt like really hot plastic or something of the sort.

I am terrified to drive on the highway in fear of it going into limp mode again.
Who else has encountered this? I know DCT owners have, but what about the Manual drivers? I just had the ECU reprogrammed last week for a launching issue. is there a hidden issue i dont know about? Ive been trying to get out of my $8000 negative equity i have in this car since last thursday. with no luck. Im growingly HATING this car.
