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 2016 Toyota Camry in the United States are 331,384 units [1]. If the total number of problems reported by Toyota Camry owners in the last 2 years is 102, and the age of the vehicle is 2, the PPMY index can then be calculated as

      PPMY Index = 102 / 331,384 / 2 * 1000 = 0.15.
