New to Alfa

I have been an Alfa owner for a year now (2005 156 JTD Sport if you are interested), this was on the rather twisted logic that all of my previous cars over the past decade or so (VW Passat, 3 x BMW 3 series and a Honda Accord) had been very unreliable, despite their reputation for quality. The Passat and one of the Beemers were comically bad. So, my logic was that I should get a car which has no reputation for quality which should be fine. As all of the previous cars had been company cars and this was my own money, I thought that I would mitigate some of the risk by buying second hand and selling it on if I didn't like it. In the event, I have driven about 24k miles and it has been a joy (touch wood). Is this luck? Should I brace myself for bad news any day now?
