Have you tried the dealer, it should still be under warranty? This sounds like a pretty serious over heating problem. If no more warranty, be sure to check that your water pump is flowing the coolant. Sometimes the impellar ( not real common but it does happen ) will strip out and then no water flows in side the engine and the car over heats like crazy, especially at higher engine speeds.
