New guy with an '06

Actually it's my daughter's car. My father in law bought the car new and just gave it to us to be our daughter's car when she turns 16 a year from now. So this gives me plenty of time to try and fix all of the little issues with the car. It's black with tan leather and seems to be fully loaded as far as I can tell and we really like it. I've been and will continue searching the forum for answers to my questions.
So far I "hope" I fixed the water leaking issue by making a new cowl seal out of metal and sealed it properly. Washed the car and found no water so fingers crossed.
Just read about the sunroof windscreen and I'm headed to work on that now. If it is gone I would like to replace it though.
Power mirrors don't work. Checked the fuse and it is good but read that the switch may be at fault so I grabbed one from the junkyard to try. But it might be bad too. Any other thing to check?
Also the driver window doesn't work. Again I grabbed another switch and window motor from the yard to hopefully fix that to.
One last big thing is that 3 of the 4 floor mats are missing. The driver mat is there and cleaned up really well but the passenger and two rears are gone. I would prefer the correct GM mats over aftermarket mats so if someone has some they might part with please lmk.
Sorry for the long winded intro but just wanted to share my excitement (and my daughter's) regarding our newest addition to the family.

Welcome to the site, the switches are a good start, also check connections and continuity of the wires from the switches to the door.
I sent a PM about those mats, hard to find an OEM set that are clean.
Mine had a lot of cigarette burns.

Welcome to the site.

Fwiw. The OEM floor mats are pretty pathetic. Most of the long time owners have opted for aftermarket ones. Ones that cover more of the carpet, catch all the dirt and can even hold any spilled liquid would be my choice.

I'm pretty happy with the Husky Liners in mine.
OEM's are on top.
