What would cause the engine to die when the temperature goes slightly past normal operating temperature on a 1998 Pont Gran Am SE v6?

I know alot of people with Grand Am's and they are all a piece of junk. Everyone that owns one that I know, which is about 10 different owners, say they are constantly having problems with their Grand Am, and would never recommend one to a friend, but they would recommend it to an enemy. lol. Everything seems to go wrong, but mostly it's the engine components(the most costly) that break. Trade it in asap.
