Question regarding car buying at a dealership

First off I am not planning on buying a car anytime soon.

Anyway to my question. If I ask, is a dealership required to tell you how costly maintenance is on a car before you buy it? Or can they lie? Some examples of maintenance would be timing belt changes, common failures, electrical gremlins, etc? Could I see a sheet showing projected repair costs? Just wondering and I am sure someone on here could answer it.


Sorry if the question seems naive I have never had to buy a car. My old truck was passed down when I turned 16 four years ago.
