"Low maintenance" is a euphemism or "code word" for not doing any maintenance--despite the fact it's required.
On a car like a Ford, you don't care anyway because it won't be worth much when all is said and done.
If you skip it on a Mercedes it will bite you bad.
There's no such thing as a maintenance-free car--just cars that don't get maintained. You gonna buy a 2002 Camry?
BTW, those keys are $200, not $2000. And, there's no such thing as an $1800 gas cap. If your approach to car ownership is mythology, you have more to learn. You cannot have a mature, successful relationship with any car without dealer support. But, life is a self-fulfilling prophecy, and if you expect to be screwed, you will be.
