Found my problem. I took my car to the Honda dealership. This was the second dealership that I called. The first one told me it was because of the cheap winter gas. Even though I tried the premium good grade gas, it still stalled again. This car stalled 18 times in just 6 weeks, mostly when it was hot outside. I called a second dealership and got a different answer. I was told it was my ignition switch. It did end up being my ignition switch. Even though the ignition switch was a recall item, it apparently was another part of the switch that went out. Been driving my car for 3 weeks now, has not died once. Have had my AC on full blast and driving in 90 degree whether. I'm once again a happy Honda owner. It pays to check around dealerships and don't listen to just one. By the way, the cost was approx. $325.
