Honda Civic Exhaust Manifold / Converter question

My 2002 Honda Civic LX has a crack in the "exhaust manifold," so says the dealer. I looked on-line and the part that has the crack is called the "catalytic converter." I believe in 2002 they make this part all as one unit. In any event, I have under 80k miles and should be covered under warranty but the dealer is adamant that it's the exhaust manifold not the converter. Does that sound accurate? The piece is all one unit. I was thinking of taking it to another dealer to get a second opinion, or should I go ahead and call up Honda Corp to discuss as well.

Help! Thanks in advance.

    I just got back from the dealer with the exact same issue, although they told me its totally under warranty... you should go to another dealer.

    Thanks for the reply. I should have posted. I called another local dealer and they told me it was covered under warranty, so I got it replaced for FREE! Kind of stinks that the other place was trying to rip me off. :mad:

    I hope you write a letter to the owner of the other dealership letting him know how the service department tried to rip you off.
