    I don't think I could say this. Better "we used to have a car".

    "Have got" is used in some dialects for the present tense of "have" (similarly "had got" for past), but I am not sure that it is so good as an infinitive.

    (I may be wrong.)

    No, got would never be used in that sentence.
