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 2003 Toyota Camry in the United States are 390,691 units [1]. If the total number of problems reported by Toyota Camry owners in the last 14 years is 921, and the age of the vehicle is 14, the PPMY index can then be calculated as

PPMY Index = 921 / 390,691 / 14 * 1000 = 0.17.
