2009 Dodge Caliber SE: I am having a problem with my newly

Customer Question

I am having a problem with my newly purchased USED 2009 Dodge Caliber.
It overheats when driven for move than an hour with the a.c. on.
Recently because of internet info, I had BOTH thermostats replaced as well as a radiator flush, and an oil change. This was all done by a very trusted mechanic.
Any suggestions?
