It isn't about luck. It's about quality and longevity. Honda has historically been among the best, which explains your ownership experience.
10 years ago you couldn't have paid me to own a ford. Today I own two of them. They've both been excellent so far. This is not the ford of yesteryear. I hope they continue the trend. They seem to have figured out the long term cost of building shitty vehicles.
