Would either of the question tags be correct in the 2 sentences below:
- They have got a new car, haven't they?
- They have got a new car, don't they?
I take the view 'have got' is used as a main verb in the 2nd sentence, thus justifying the use of 'to do' as an auxiliary.
Looking forward to your opinion,

I don't find either of your sentences natural. The following work for me:
"They have a new car, haven't they?"
"They got a new car, didn't they?"
"They bought a new car, didn't they?"
"Invading armies have no rights." Noam Chomsky
I'd use "They've got" more than any of the others.
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
