The alternator seems to fail frequently around 120k miles on the V8?

On ours we also had to replace:
* The starter around 80k miles. Under CPO warranty thankfully.
* The steering rack:
--- Once around 80k miles as well. Under CPO warranty again.
--- Again less than two years later. Off warranty this time...

Is the I6 less prone to these disappointments?
* From a brand reputed for its durability. Or were these Ford parts attached to the otherwise well regarded Yamaha V8...
* I also have a 1991 Mercedes (300SE) with 205k miles where all of the above are still original...
