Take another look at the sentence:

Jim would have driven faster if his mother had took her own car to the mall. Instead, she rode with him, criticizing his every decision and shrieking hysterically whenever he ran a yellow light.

The second verb, had took, is the problem. This verb requires the past participle because of the auxiliary verb had. Had taken is the correct form.

take take(s) took taken

Rode, the verb you chose, is perfectly correct. Before you continue, review the rules for irregular verbs.
