This feature has been labeled as deprecated. The recommended replacement is: specific values of shop=* such as shop=car, shop=bicycle, shop=boat etc..
The reason is documented in Deprecated features. You are still free to continue to use or interpret this tag as you see fit since OpenStreetMap does not have “banned features”.
Under no circumstances should you (semi-)automatically change “deprecated” tags to something else in the database on a large scale without conforming to the automated edits code of conduct. Any such change will be reverted.

The tag shop=vehicles has been used for various types of shops which sells vehicles. However, in almost all cases there is a more specific and more common tag which can be used, for example shop=motorcycle, shop=boat, shop=bicycle, etc.

Rarely, this tag has been used for a shop which sells more than 1 type of vehicle, with additional tags used to specify the type of vehicles sold or serviced.

However, it is more common to map such shops with 2 different nodes, or with just 1 node based on the main type of vehicle sold.

One of these more specific tags may be appropriate:
