What makes you say this?
Look, everything I've read about the Terra and Strada has been very positive, and I think you should buy one if you want one, but assuming parts will be available, "...for the next 10 years minimum no matter what." is naive. They might be, but they might not be. You don't know and neither does anybody else.
If there is some law requiring this, please post a reference to the statute. The only laws I am aware of regarding parts availability are that they have to be available during the warranty period and regarding emission systems.
