Oil Change at 881miles??

Hi everyone. I just picked up a 2013 SS with the Ls3 motor. It was a used, yes I said used, vehicle and was garage kept by an older gentlemen for a little over a year and barley made it out of his driveway while owning it. So my question is, with all that sitting time should I change the oil ? And would you consider it still in the "Brake in" period? Thank in advance.

You might want to consider adding a magnetic drain plug. My 1st oil change was at 36 miles and this is what it collected in 582 miles.

+1 Change it at least once a year if it doesn't get driven that much.

Any time I acquire any used vehicle, I change all the fluids. The only time I would not is if it came from a dealer I trusted that had done that when they took it in already.
