I had a GM product prior to buying my Pilot and a Service Advisor at a GM dealership (who actually was a "retired"licensed mechanic) told me that the manufacturers are all insane with these plug change intervals.
He told me the trouble the techs have getting the plugs out was ridiculous. He said getting spark plugs out that have been in the heads for 4 0r 5 years is a nightmare.
He strongly recommended to forget what GM etc say and service the plugs at 30,000 Kilometre intervals.
Not necessarily change them but at least remove , inspect and re-install.
Since that conversation, other techs I've spoken with have reinforced that belief.
I changed my plugs at 100,000 Kilometres (60,000 miles) . They are removed and inspected every 30,000 or so.
To hell with what Honda "Recommends"
