Could find on a search. In process of buying a 2011 Camaro 2SS 6.2 automatic with 16333 miles, Carfax show one owner. Wondering if it would be good to have tranny serviced, just fluid change or flush to?

I would. Contrary to popular opinion, ATF does not last forever. OEM fluids come from the low bid supplier. While they meet GM spec (at the time) it does not mean they are the best.

Here is what I use in my 2021 Sierra Denali 6.2L/10-speed>>>100% Synthetic ATF

Note--Changing ATF on these cars is not a simple do-it-yourself project, there are no dipstick so professional service is recommended. There is a YouTube video on this subject.

personaly i would drop the pan, add a plug, replace the filter and change the fluid. future fluid changes, every other oil change or so, would just be drain and fill. the filter is most likely just a screen. draining might get half the fluid out. a flush would get costly and you would need to make an apointment and all the hassle that goes with that. plus the upsell bs. i would also get a spare fill plug, just in case. it may seem to much for lots of people but thats what i would do for a car i intend to keep... plus more. lol

70 L camino, grampa engine, g-force 5 spd, road rage suspension. Pray first before all else fails.

Did I read that right 2011 with 16k miles. Somebody's been babying it, you prob have nothing to worry about.

Just bought a 2024 Chevy Silverado 1500 LT and negotiated $9k off MSRP. I brag about it every chance I get!
