    ok i tricked you, it's a 2010 honda cr-v.

    just curious on what the consensus is?

    it's my dad's car - he barely drives it.

    should i go ahead and change the plugs or it's all about mileage and not years?

    thanks!

    I tried to look it up.
    Apparently it has a maintenance minder system
    My under standing is, that it will tell you when they need replaced.
    I believe a #4 will come on to indicate the plugs need changed.
    I could be wrong, seems like it would be easier to just have it printed on a schedule.
    Then again, some cars don’t even have an engine oil dip stick. You get a light to indicate low oil.
    I’m not too sure on all this new “technology”

    Call the dealer or pull a plug and look.
    That’s all the help I can give you.

    Everything I saw was 10yr-100k but at 26k I wouldn’t change. If you pull now they will look brand new.

    I wouldn't change them. Especially if everything is running fine.

    thanks - sorry for the trick - but it's really general car advice and my taco buddies are always quick to respond

    Little bit of stuff.
    Honda's recommended service interval (I work for Honda) is every 105k and to be coupled with a valve adjustment at that interval. So long as you have no other underlying issues or concerns that could be related, let them be.
