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 2001 Dodge Durango in the United States are 38,057 units [1]. If the total number of problems reported by Dodge Durango owners in the last 17 years is 685, and the age of the vehicle is 17, the PPMY index can then be calculated as

      PPMY Index = 685 / 38,057 / 17 * 1000 = 1.06.
