Default 220 nissan altima

The ac compressor comes on for and then shuts down for 7 sec, and on again for 7 secs. continures to do this and this never changes no matter what setting the AC is on, dealer says this is the way it is suppose to work?????? sounds non-kosher to me? what is your opinion. Anyone else experiencing this. Also in the evening, nomatter what temp the AC is running at the windows fog, especiallthe windshield, passenger side and rear. I have to put rear difroster on or just open the window. Any suggestions. Is the compressor faulty.
Also a vibration going about 55 to 57, had wheels checked by dealer, rebalanced, and still a vibration. Tranmission going from 1st to 2nd at a slow speed, such as making a turn from a complete stop or yielding, jumps or or jerks to 2nd, not smoothly going into gear. Anyone else with these lemons. Car is only one month into ownership, had 7 miles at time of purchase, and already afraid there will be major problems before I know it and it is my first new car since 1990, and that one bit the dust with 145,000 miles on it, plymouth acclaim. Got a lot of years and miles out of that one, thanks for your help

A/C Problem: The A/C system may be overcharge or the pressure switch is no working properly. If the system is overcharge the compressor comes come on, but the pressure will increase very rapidly (few seconds), then the pressure switch will sense the excessive pressure and it will turn of the compressor. Before you do replace any parts, make sure the system is charge properly.

Wheel Problems: Have your dealer perform a “Road Force Test”, some times the wheel balance is OK, but the tires may have a flat spot or the wheel may be damage.

Shifting problem: Normal. “California Stop”= not making a complete stop
