CJDR dealers get screwed basically with the 5 category restriction.  You would want to definitely have Used Car Dealer, Jeep Dealer, Chrysler Dealer, Jeep Dealer, and Truck Dealer.  That leaves no place for Fixed Ops like "Oil Change Service".  I hope in the new updated Google Places platform these arbitrary restrictions will be removed. For now, you are limited.

Hey Brian, Thanks great stuff. I do have a question pertaining to Dealers with more then one franchise and the categories. As you know we are a CDJR Dealer. For my categories I am listing Chrysler Dealer, Jeep Dealer, Dodge Dealer, Used Car Dealer and Auto Repair Shop (I left out Ram because it seems the public hasn't caught on). These are matched up with my Adwords Express campaigns. Should the have "new" in front of them to take advantage of that search or am I better off with just MAKE Dealer to have it be a broader term? As a side note; very distracting with all the Wines behind you!!!! ;-)

I created this video to explain to dealers what they should do to protect their personalized Google Places data.
