She said she can still drive it, but never said it was overheating. She said she can only drive it up to 65 mph.

I would think she can drive as long as no overheating

how far she got to go

Chad

let her keep an eye at car temperature if it rise ,pull over and let it cool down ,if not she will be okay

Hi there again. My daughter said it's not over heating at all. I told her exactly what you said, and she is driving back home today.
She also said she is taking it in to a garage just to get it checked out before she heads home.

Awesome news :)
