ENGINE OVERHEATING

2004 Hyundai Elantra

Engine Cooling problem
2004 Hyundai Elantra 4 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 65000 miles

My Hyundai Elantra 2004 car with 65000 miles started showing engine malfunction, I drove it for another 5-7 miles to see local mechanic. It stopped later on and I restarted again and after half miles it stopped. The mechanic after seeing it. Said I overheated the car and engine is locked now because of heat and lack of coolant. After checking it he says I need to change the engine and radiator to run the car. I dont understand many technical terms, but I'm really wondering is that is there no solution at all. Is there is a chance that a mechanic with better experience and knowledge can solve this problem?

Hyundai's have a 10 year 100,000 mile waranty on the powertrain, the engine qualifies as a powertrain part. Other than that, most mechanics can tell if an engine is siezed.
