Default Changing spark plugs

I have the equivalent of 40,000 miles on my VUE and the dealer suggested changing the spark plugs. They said that because it is seven years old, they should be changed.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

You can take them out and check yourself. Millage wise is somewhere between too early about might be time. I'd change at 60000 if there is nothing currently wrong with them. At times they are slow and need business, so suggest changes just for fun.
Changing plugs on this 2.2 is easy, maybe 10 minutes at home.

Plugs are good for 100k. They don't "age" but they do "wear out" at around 100k.

Yep, don't change them until 100k.

No need yet. You will notice no difference except a lighter wallet.
