I had a similar situation and after some research, I discovered it was doing what many referred to as "Phantom Stalling" It would only happen once in a while and when I wanted the mechanic to see it, it never happened for him.
Keep an eye every so often on your RPM gauge (beside the speedometer) and see if it cuts out completely and does not move when you speed up (shows 0 even though your still in in drive and moving). Mine would do that and after a few minutes the car would stall and I would have a hard time starting it back up.
What I found out was that my "Crankshaft sensor" had gone bad. I picked up a new one at AutoZone and had the mechanic replace it.
My car has not stalled since Ive had the sensor replaced and I found that when I was ideling, the idle was a lot smoother than befor.
Hope this helps you.

Check alternator voltage at back of alternator ( big wire ), if you have no less then 13.5 volt's, alternator is ok, check for blown alternator fuse or break at wire from back of alternator to starter then to battery, could be a bad fuse link at starter.

The engine and transmission in this cars drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL THE DIAGNOSIS & TESTING IS COMPLETED.
