|Tools for this tag|
A place that primarily sells cars (automobiles). You can also use this tag for shops that sell buses or trucks. They may also repair cars or sell accessories or parts, but their primary business is selling cars.
Car dealerships (that primarily sell a certain brand of car) and used car lots would also use this tag.
How to map
Tags used in combination
You can use a combination for the service tags like service=dealer;repair;tyres;parts.
But it's recommeded to avoid that. Better use a (simple) namespace, see the example column.
An undiscussed  change to the ID editor lead to a confusing bunch of tags. The reason for this decision was apparently that service=* leads to conflicts. So better use the namespace mentioned below.
|name=*||Name of the shop.|
|opening_hours=*||When the shop is open.||Mo-Sa 10:00-20:00; Su,PH off |
Tool to test the format
|operator=*||To specify the proprietor or the name of the chain it belongs to.||"The operator tag is used to name a company, corporation, person or any other entity who is directly in charge"|
|brand=*||Sold or supported brands||Toyota;Nissan;Renault,...|
|service=tyres||If it sell tyres.||car:tyres=yes/no|
|service=parts||If it sells car parts. In case the shop only sells car parts (usually independent of a specific car brand) you may also use shop=car_parts.||car:parts=yes/no|
|service=repair||If it does repair. In case the shop only offers car repair (usually independent of a specific car brand) you may also use shop=car_repair.||car:repair=yes/no|
|service=electrical||If it does repair for electrical car. In case the shop only offers car repair (usually independent of a specific car brand) you may also use shop=car_repair.||car:type=electric|
|second_hand=*||If it sells second hand cars.||yes (if it sells new and second hand), only (if it only sells second hand) OR car:sales=yes;used if both|
using a namespace
- opening_hours:workshop=* - (in case the workshop opens different to the sales department office / shop)
- car:repair=yes/no/glass/tuning/service - (service = not a real workshop, just oil change, tyres and so on)
- car:parts=yes/no/custom - (custom = non-standard "tuning" parts or accessories)
Overview about the "service" format
The overview is quite difficult as of the Semi-colon_value_separator
so here's just the most common value
service=repair (only repair)
service contains repair (much more, set the timeout to 100)
Note that the usage isn't recommended according to this wiki entry :
