When driving this vehicle in the normal flow of highway traffic for 45 minutes or more, the car will overheat. When this happens the car drops in power /speed down to 20-30 mph. It feels as if you are running out of gas. This makes it extremely unsafe and dangerous to be able to get off the freeway without being either rear ended or side swiped. The car will continue to remain at the lower speed until you get off the highway and allow it to cool.
