This week’s Super Bowl reminds us heroes can come from the most unlikely places.

Here is the list of major repairs: one alternator, one air conditioner compressor and one axle replaced on the 1996 Saturn and a pinhole in the air-conditioning line and the intake manifold gaskets replaced on the 2000 Montana.
