  Compare Reliability Across Model Years Using PPMY Index

It would not be fair to compare the older model year Honda CR-V to a new one in terms of the problems reported since older vehicles have been in service longer and more problems should be reported. In order to compare the reliability across CR-V model years, we use the PPMY index which is defined as the problems reported per thousand vehicles per Year. A smaller PPMY index implies a better reliability for the model year under study.

    PPMY = P / S / Y * 1000

Where P = total problems reported during the life of a Honda CR-V model year; S = total units sold of the model year; Y = years since the debut of the model year (the age of the vehicle).

The result is shown in Table 3.
