sounds like the battery, my factory battery went out last winter on me (also own a 2008)

the car almost dieing on you is because the batter didn't have enough juice to turn the car over, and died, it probably caused the ecu to reset. the car can have sporadic idling and wanting to die when you drive it right away after reseting the computer. which it sounds like is what happened. it is the computer trying to adjust all it's ratio's and re-learn different things related to your driving and the surrounding atmospheric conditions
