Question Maintenance Advice - Low mileage C6

I recently traded a vehicle with a family member for their 2006 C6 Corvette. The Corvette I now own has 17,500 miles. It has only had oil changes (via dealers), never a major service. The vehicle has always been garaged and is in excellent shape. The only issue I notice is some very minor leaking of fluid below the engine area, toward the left (driver's) side.

I am not a "gearhead," so my question is this: what do you all (experts) recommend I do at this time as far a service? It seems that perhaps transmission fluid, coolant, etc. could be changed given the age of the vehicle, but I'm curious as to (a) what anyone might recommend and (b) how much you think it should cost for your rec. I travel back and forth from AZ to California, so either state would work for service.

Thanks in advance for your advice!

If it was mine I would perform a major service on it and find that oil leak .

Given the age of the vehicle, it certainly wouldn't hurt to change out all of the fluids. In order to determine the source of your oil leak, you will need to have it put on a lift and cleaned thoroughly underneath and then drive for a while and then repeat to see if it can then be determined where it's leaking.
