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 2008 Nissan Versa in the United States are 77,120 units [1]. If the total number of problems reported by Nissan Versa owners in the last 10 years is 410, and the age of the vehicle is 10, the PPMY index can then be calculated as

PPMY Index = 410 / 77,120 / 10 * 1000 = 0.53.
