The most common cause of overheating for other owners is the water pump and thermostat. The car would need to have a thorough cooling system check and a pressure test done to diagnose the what is going on. My best suggestion would be to have a certified mechanic come and inspect your overheating issue for you. They will be able to perform tests on your car and make sure the necessary repairs are made to resolve this issue and prevent further damage.
