You must get out of car and check whether fans (both) are actually working when the overheat occurs, they MUST. Or you can pay someone else to do that, so many don't even want to exert the effort. If fans not working then check the fan resistor which is in the top middle of the radiator fan shroud, two wires running to it, unplug and see if melted there, very common on these. If so you need the resistor and possibly the plug connector as it often melts too. Fix yourself and save the easiest $100 bill you will ever make.
