You should check the cooling fans are coming on with the a/c to keep the engine and transmission cool. The CVT transmission may have a blocked cooler or cooler screen in the transmission. Have a CVT transmission mechanic check the cooler and screen for the transmission. If it is okay then the transmission may be low on fluid or slipping.
