2006 ford escape hybrid. driving on hwy 75 south in ohio. i was driving about 68 miles an hour. my car stopped running and slowed abruptly. the info display said main engine over heat slow and continue to safe stop. i pulled over and drove off the highway shut the car down and restarted it. it ran for about a 1/2 mile and shut down again. this time i started up again and dove it about five miles before i shut it down for about 20 minutes.there was no signs or smells of hot over heating engine. i then got in a drove it for about 5 more hours without any problems. my concern is that i all most got rear ended from a semi. i have read other hybrid forums with other people having the same problem. *tr
