Only overheat when your sitting still or going slow? Might be the radiator fan. Common problem

Check your coolent level after it cools down for starters. Fan may not be running. Far as vibration anything from unbalanced tire to wore out tie rod or ball joint.

I have a 2003 and that happened to me .As soon as I slowed down or stopped Temp. would go Up. I went and got a thermostat and that was the problem . Oh sometimes it would work and then it wouldn't.
