06 Goat slippin on 3rd gear

Everything so far has been perfect with my GTO for about 2 months from the dealership with only 60,000 on the dash. Then today I leave for lunch and my Goat was not itself. Its an automatic and when i feel it trying to shift to 3rd my rpms slip and almost redline. Its not catching 3rd gear at highway or street speeds and doesnt sound cheap. PLEASE ANY HEEEEELP!!!!!!!

Check fluid level but sounds like a trans rebuild

Sounds expensive my fluid levels were pretty low so im flushing all the fluid and changing the filter in the morning. If that doesnt work than its problaby the tranny. thanks svede any recommended trans rebuild kits for an 06 GTO. And ball park estimate of how much it can all cost.......Anybody?

Over a couple of grand. There are companies that offer "Stage x" builds for a little more bullet proof ones
