Service at Volvo dealerships haven't been affected by Geely's takeover. In China, consumers say sales and after sales service is as normal.

At one of Volvo's sales and service centres in Beijing, several customers are selecting cars. They say Geely's purchase hasn't influenced their choice.

One consumer said "It's just a change of the boss. Its technology and management model are still the same. I think the quality will not change. "

But there are also some customers who are worrying Volvo's brand value will be hurt.

One consumer said "Will the brand be changed to Geely Volvo? If not, I think it's OK. One of my friend wanted to buy one, but he just worried about this."

Volvo's dealers say after the take over, consumers will get better benefits.

Chang Zuojun, Sales Manager of Volvo Dealership said "The number of accredited stores will increase. That means more preferential prices and better after-sales service."

According to the purchase deal, Volvo won't change the supply channels of complete vehicles and parts, and will continue to run independently.
