Primary Business Category not being shown in listing

I've set the primary category for my business, but in the Google Business listing it's showing the second category.  Any reason why that would happen?

For some reason I can't insert an image, but the SERP is showing Used Car Dealer in Westminster, Colorado.

Won't let me add image. Just google Mercedes-Benz of Westminster and the knowledge graph shows, 'Used Car Dealer in Westminster, CO.'

the name of this businesss listing violates Googles Guidelines.
It should eb just "Mercedes-Benz of Westminster"
And what oyu highlited in yellow has nothings to to with categories
Its a Google created snipet of a bsuiness description.
Categories are vsible on classic view of G+ and on MapMaker.
