400 Carbon

Are all "regular" car maintenance really necessary?

I am 17 and my first car is a 2007 mazda 6 with just under 40,000 miles on it. I feel like ive been spending way too much for services and i still need to get more done. I mostly drive just from school and work both very close to my house (less then 2 miles). My car needed to have the carbon build up removed and that was $400, then I just had my brake fluid flushed and new brakes put on the front. Do i really need to have stuff like the brake, differential, transmission, or power steering fluid or fuel filter changed every 2 years or 30,000 miles? Stuff like that seems like no one has ever changed on a newer car. Does it really need to be done or are all the service stations just wanting to rip me off? What would you recommend changing/replacing now? If you know how much those services you suggest cost add that too or if its really easy i could do myself.
Thanks

I own a 1993 Chevy PU with over 200k miles on it. It has NEVER had:
a. a tune up
b. a radiator flush
c. a brake fluid flush
d. a power steering flush
e. carbon build up removed
f. a transmission fluid flush or transmission replaced
g. a differential lube changed
h. the fuel filter replaced
And it STILL passes emissions. I do change the oil and top off the fluids as needed.

I'm not saying that's what your garage did, but ... removing the heads to remove carbon deposits is almost never necessary if your car still runs. How long did they keep your car for this job? On most cars, it's an all day job to remove everything needed to get to the cylinders (intake manifold and everything attached to it, exhaust manifold, valve cover(s), etc. Short drives like you do can build up carbon deposits, but I don't think in 40k miles. I would have asked what tells them that you have carbon build up. Of course they will have a BS answer to try and convince you that you need it done.
