Default Re: 01 pt cruiser radiator fan not working HELP

I met and fell in love with my '01 PT Cruiser back in Jan of this year. I was looking for something small to get me back and forth to school (Adult going back to college) that I could just pay for and go. Alas, in April, on my way back from a conference in Nashville, my baby overheated. After getting her towed home, a garage charged me $125 to change a thermostat. Two months later, earlier this month, overheated again on a short run into the city. Hubby has changed thermostat, again, water pump, flushed cooling system including the radiator. The fan works when idling and our problem isn't with the car sitting and idling or even in stop and go traffic, it overheats when we are driving on the interstate. He's thinking of having to change the radiator and if that doesn't work, he's thinking of having to change the head. I do not want to sell my car, but do not want to put more money into something that's not going to ever get better. I've read other's with the same problems posts and am wondering if their cars are finally fixed. Thanks!
