In our research we use the PPMY index to compare the reliability of vehicles. The PPMY index of a certain model is defined as the problems reported per thousand vehicles per Year. The total sales of the 2000 Buick Century in the United States are 144,490 units [1]. If the total number of problems reported by Buick Century owners in the last 18 years is 203, and the age of the vehicle is 18, the PPMY index can then be calculated as
