Check for vacuum leaks and check the idle air control valve. If the check engine light is on, have the computer scanned for trouble codes. Most parts stores will do it for free.

My 2004 was hesitating at stop lights and even died a couple of times. It turned out to be a valve on the AC that was clogging. The AC would cut out on really hot days also. Dealer soaked me $700.00, a friend later told me that the valve I need was only $60.00 plus labor. At least I got a one year warranty from the dealer, should be a lifetime for that price.
