FOI request detail

TFL and Toyota UK regarding Toyota Prius

Request ID: FOI-2227-1617
Date published: 19 May 2017

You asked

In relation to correspondence between TFL and Toyota UK regarding Toyota Prius vehicle fires, would you consider a more detailed response in relation to this question? For instance could you provide me with copies of any correspondence regarding vehicle fires in Toyota Prius vehicles and particularly the dates of any correspondence. I am surprised that as TFL are in receipt of a Freedom of Information from London Fire Brigade confirming 34 fires involving Toyota Prius Vehicles in London alone that TFL have accepted such a vague reply from Toyota UK where public safety is concerned. There is a contradiction between 16 fires nationwide and over double the amount in London alone. Which leads me to ask once again under the freedom of Information act; 'Can you confirm whether the cause of the 34 fires involving Toyota Prius vehicles in London between 1st January 2015 and 3rd November 2016 is known by Toyota UK and also TFL.' Could you also provide me with details of how I can make a formal complaint against TFL over the handling of this matter.
