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 2006 Toyota Camry in the United States are 197,656 units [1]. If the total number of problems reported by Toyota Camry owners in the last 11 years is 464, and the age of the vehicle is 11, the PPMY index can then be calculated as

PPMY Index = 464 / 197,656 / 11 * 1000 = 0.21.
