My car has 113000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there:

On the passenger side of your Buick, there are a few parts within the AC system such as the AC condenser and compressor that could be the source of your moisture or water on the floor board. If you don’t notice a coolant smell, it’s doubtful that the heater core is causing this problem. It’s also possible that you have weather stripping issues on the windows or under the dashboard that are causing these problems.
