Slow respons kickdown

I lately notice that the kickdown of my auto gearbox is responding very slowly when I press the accelerator pedal. Perhaps it's been like that always, but it strikes me that I have to wait for 3-4 seconds untill the gear shifts down and rev goes up. Is this normal, or should the kickdown perhaps be adjusted ??

Is there no acceleration at all for 3-4 seconds? This could be an engine power lag problem, not a transmission problem.

Is there sluggish acceleration, and the engine has speeded up and sounds like it is trying to accelerate, but waiting for a lower gear from the transmission? That might be transmission-related.
