Default need some advice on 2006 camry

I have a 2006 camry I4 and I wanted to know what interval should i
change the spark plugs? My older toyotas i usually just changed them
about 30k but i have heard that the new engines the plugs last longer.
I bought my car used and the previous owner was boob about cars. Of
course the dealer close to me wants to know the mileage before they
answer to make it sound legit when they tell me i should change them.

Can some one tell me the official interval?

Thanks

I would go with whatever the manual says, and if that doesn't say, go
by the Haynes Manual.

If you don't have a manual, Toyota will be happy to mail you one free
of charge. Visit www.toyota.com.

Thanks for the reply, i couldnt find out where they mail you a free
one but they did have an on-line version.

According to the Toyota documentation a 2006 I4 camry's spark plugs
should be changed at 120,000 miles.

Here is the link:

You just have to call them.

800-331-4331
from http://www.toyota.com/help/contactus.html

Make sure they have the correct make and model. I called them to
order a free manual for an '02 Sienna I had just bought, and they sent
me a manual for an '02 Celica. I had to call them again...

That's just amazing.

I checked for my '02 Sienna (the latest vehicle model I own) and it
said mine should be replaced at 60k miles, per the emission system
warranty.

The new iridium spark plugs with platinum ground pads can last
100-120K miles (90K miles or less in city driving). But I wouldn't
mind inspecting them at 60K miles. The NGK IXs at 50K miles there are
still very little wear. Good stuff, use them **as long as specified as
applicable in the NGK catalog**:
