General Motors has announced that it will be issuing a recall of its Cadillac SRX crossover due to an issue that could cause some of the vehicles to have a three to four second delay in power delivery when the gas pedal is pressed. Such a delay may increase the risk of crash, though at this point there have been no reports of injury or a crash due to the issue.

The recall affects the 2013 SRX equipped with a 3.6-liter V-6, but only those examples manufactured from May 29, 2012 through June 26, 2013. According to General Motors Company [NYSE:GM], 50,571 vehicles are affected by the latest recall in the U.S. alone.

The automaker has determined that the problem is due to faulty transmission control module programming and is now in the process of notifying owners affected by the recall. They will be asked to take their vehicles to their nearest Cadillac dealership, which will reprogram the transmission control module, free of charge.
