— 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 the 2013 model year with 3.6-liter V6 engines.

GM says in documents filed with U.S. safety regulators that the problem happens when the transmission shifts from first to second gear and the driver brakes the vehicle to under 5 miles per hour. GM 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.
