If you are a Cadillac driver that’s feeling a little less “oomph” under the hood lately, this may be the reason why.

General Motors is recalling more than 50,000 luxury SUVs to fix a computer error that can delay acceleration for three or four seconds.

The recall affects some Cadillac SRX SUVs from 2013 model year with 3.6 liter V6 engines.

GM says that the problem happens when the transmission shifts from first to second gear and when the driver brakes the vehicle to under five miles per hour.

The company says a lag in acceleration can increase the risk of a crash.

GM dealers will update the transmission control computer at no cost to customers.

No date has been set yet for the recall to begin.

GM has recalled about seven million vehicles since February, including 2.6 million for a deadly ignition switch problem.
