small car iamge 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 2014 Honda Accord in the United States are 379,266 units [1]. If the total number of problems reported by Honda Accord owners in the last 4 years is 515, and the age of the vehicle is 4, the PPMY index can then be calculated as

      PPMY Index = 515 / 379,266 / 4 * 1000 = 0.34.
