    I have the 2011 Tacoma Crew Cab Prerunner with the 4L V6 VVT-1 engine. The dealer says I need to change spark plugs at 30,000 miles.

    Is this true?

    Thanks

    Yes this is true. Our trucks use regular copper plugs not the platinum 100k plugs. So every 30k you will need a spark plug change.
