I've got the 09 2.5i limited OB. If I'm reading the schedule right they should be changed every 30K miles. But the dealers says that its every 60K miles. What schedule are you following?

My XT is 60k, and I follow it. Well, I've done it once. But the NA is definately 30k. Maybe they put in a different plug, but I would stick with that is suggested in the manual and do it every 30k, as they suggest.

If still under warranty, go by what your owner's manual says.

Out of warranty, the plugs aren't that difficult to pull and inspect. The plugs I replaced at 50k still had life left.

It SHOULD be. But sometimes seems to reflect your dealer's schedule instead of the manual's schedule. Not sure if that is intentional or a coding error.

Decided to visit they dealer. They confirmed that my 09 OB Limited has the 60K plugs. They said the manual is wrong.

Very unlikely the manual is wrong. Unless it's not for you model
