My car has 240000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
If the car just shuts down with no warning, sputtering,etc, it sounds like your ignition switch is failing. It will not set any fault codes or turn the Check Engine Light on.
There was a recall on a number of Honda models for this specific problem. You may want to check with your local Honda dealer or by running your VIN number on safercar.gov to see if the recall covers your car. If so, then the repair should be at no charge.
