My car has 80000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello. Thank you for writing in. At first your symptoms sound like the vehicle, and engine both suffered a loss of electrical power. This is typically a result of the alternator failing. Your specific year for your make and model did in fact have recalls for alternator issues. These unspecified issues cause alternator failure and will cause the car to stall. As this is a safety concern related to crashes, you may want to research your vehicle’s identification number (VIN), and make sure your vehicle wasn’t one known to be affected. Either way, the alternator will need to be replaced. However if there is a significant issue with the circuitry that will cause a new alternator to fail, this issue will need to be diagnosed and repaired first.
