2012 Ford Focus Scheduled Maintenance

While perusing through the owner's manual, I was surprised to learn that in addition having an intelligent oil life monitor that effective extends the intervals between oil changes, the 2012 Ford Focus has no scheduled tune- ups. (at least non that is mentioned in the owner's manual).

Here's what my dealer rep said:

"The intelligent oil-life monitor, monitors your oil and the monitor will go as long as one year or 10,000 miles on the focus. This means that you don't have to change your oil untill 10,000 miles; if you do the oil monitor will let you know.

There is no maitinance schedule for the focus other than the oil changes at 10,000 miles and the spark plug changes at 100,000 miles. That is amazing. Just let me know if there is anything else i can do for you."

Is this correct? Is this pretty standard with new cars today? Nobody has ever mentioned this about the car and I have read through a lot print research before buying. If it it correct, then it would substantially lower the overall cost of ownership, especially over other/ older cars that require such maintenance. Just surprised it's never mentioned as a selling point.
