AC and Transmission Problems

Vehicle2006 Nissan Maxima 3.5 SE 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
ReviewWas good for the first two years, then the AC started blowing hot air, had high pressure line replaced under warranty. A year later the same thing happened, this time the low pressure AC line, and out of warranty. The hose and metal crimps seemed to have failed, replacement hose was more supple than original hose. After 4.5 years and 79,000 miles the transmission has started slipping between 2nd and 3rd gear, with no check engine light on. Taking it to the dealer for diagnosis in a couple of days. Purchased mechanical breakdown insurance (MBI) from credit union, which is good for 4 more months, so I hope it will be covered.
Best FeaturesRoomy even for 6'3" driver, feels good to drive, many conveniences with the driver preferred package, like blue tooth, folding side mirrors and auto- dim rear view mirror, heated seats, tilt steering, good sound system. Has lots of trunk room.
Worst FeaturesFor shorter people backing up is difficult because the back of the car seems higher than usual. Car has some road noice that could be reduced.
