Yes they can. or email the VIN number to this guy and he can send you a GMVIS report:

Was that the only real concern for these transmissions other than the usual wear and tear issues?
For the Autos yes. Try to get them to change the fluid for you as well.

Any other things to watch for with these cars?
Spark Plugs are not 100K mile interval like other GM products. every 30K. Have them put in a fresh batch for you. That is what will save your coil from burning out.
