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 2015 GMC Yukon in the United States are 64,622 units [1]. If the total number of problems reported by GMC Yukon owners in the last 3 years is 254, and the age of the vehicle is 3, the PPMY index can then be calculated as

      PPMY Index = 254 / 64,622 / 3 * 1000 = 1.31.
