Most of the cost comparisons assume taking it to a high end shop where the labor is ridiculously expensive. For example, there are a lot of items that need to be inspected and that labor quickly drives up the price whereas you can do this yourself for free instead of paying a shop $200 per hour to LOOK at your car.

If you can DIY the work, the maintenance is actually quite affordable.
