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 2010 Suzuki Grand Vitara in the United States are 7,498 units [1]. If the total number of problems reported by Suzuki Grand Vitara owners in the last 9 years is 24, and the age of the vehicle is 9, the PPMY index can then be calculated as

      PPMY Index = 24 / 7,498 / 9 * 1000 = 0.36.
