Been there, done that - I had a Ford Tempo in for warranty work and the dealer recommended a plug replacement and tune-up. I was surprised - both b/c I didn't give them any reason to pull the plugs and b/c I had just changed them a few thousand miles ago - 30K plug interval. He admitted that they were just going by the mileage on my car, so I said to put the car back together and I'd pick it up.

The worst example I had was a tire shop telling me I needed new rear rotors on a gf's Honda with rear drum brakes.
