PPMY Index and Problem Occurrence Trend

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 2005 Honda Accord in the United States are 372,020 units [1]. If the total number of problems reported by Honda Accord owners in the last 12 years is 676, and the age of the vehicle is 12, the PPMY index can then be calculated as

PPMY Index = 676 / 372,020 / 12 * 1000 = 0.15.
