      Looks like it will be listed on the Hong Kong stock exchange.

      Volvo and Geely to merge

      https://www.ft.com/content/3c9e3c34-4c04-11ea-95a0-43d18ec715f5

      This was probably the plan all along. I suspect they will list Volvo/Geely on a Chinese stock exchange.

      Then your alignment and/or balance was off. With todayís tires on AWD it is best to get them seated and not move them. I get 30,000 on all season tires. Yearly alignment.

      As a former 2015.5 V60 driver, I hear you. I suspect you may need to get a Sensus software update at the dealer. Hope your V60 Polestar is doing well.
