I have impression that you are getting paranoid not even knowing what the issue is about.
No, new car stalling is not normal, but the truth is that new technology outgrows 99.999% of users and without dealer starting troubleshooting you just are killing yourself with worry.
I have similiar issue with my new, expensive laptop. Nice thing, but occasionally some keys will stop work.
I just restart it and go with my life.
Sure if the issue will repeat too often, I will make warranty claim, but asking for new computer never crossed my mind.

I'm going to reimpress upon you that had you not finalized papers and this thing stalled on an overnight test drive, then I would've dumped it on their doorstep next morning. However, the deal was finalized, it's yours and you have to work within the boundries of your state's lemon laws. Until it's been in the shop a total of 30 days and 3 unsuccessful repair attempts, I'm afraid you're going to have to suck it up and deal with it.
