Apparently, it is one of the things not replaced when your wife takes her car in for a 60,000, 75,000, 100,000, etc, service at the dealer/local independent shop (after the local dealer closes). Bought it with 43,000 miles.

What car? Some vehicle service intervals are pretty long ways off, like sparkplugs. Those were definitely shot though.

That can happen in short order if you use standard tip plugs with the high-energy ignition systems on most current autos. That's why many require the platinum tipped plugs.
