Couple of problems there to comsider, the concrete most likely does not have a vapor barrier. Floorcovering installed there will trap moisture and be damaged by alakali.

Also the slab will not be level, garages are sloped toward the front so any water getting in will drain out.

Also probaly lower than the rest of the house
Might consider having the floor built up with screeds and plywood to get it level, and even with the adjoining rooms.
