Hi . Thank you for asking your question on JustAnswer. thats a turbo charger issue...the car is not running at the proper boost...I would call the dealer and see if its a warranty issue

If it is not a warranty issue is this something likely to cost me big bucks?

it could be a turbo charger or a waste gate actuator issue....its likley going to be atleast 100 dollars to pinpoint the failure...It can get expensive
