    Toyota's low maintenance costs can be attributed to several factors. One, their parts and labor are typically very reasonable. Two, Toyota doesn't build unnecessary complexity into their cars simply because they can. Three, Toyota moved away from timing belts, in favor of timing chains, on most of their engines in the early 2000's. Four, Toyota builds more hybrids than anyone else. Hybrids have much longer maintenance intervals than non-hybrids. They're also the king of long term reliability for some of the same reasons, among others.
