I don't know about the 2000 but think it is 80k. Before going to the expense
of the converter have the rest of the system checked out. O2 sensor can
cause false indication of bad twc. Check the threads at www.odyclub.com for
lots of information and do a google search for the OBDII code. Of coarse if
it is under warranty let them replace it and see if it comes back. Many have
found the converter didn't fix it. It also looks like Honda may have the
specs set too tight in the computer for those years.... Info on ODYCLUB.
I have heard that Autozone wll read the OBD codes for you (OBD= on board
diagnostics).They will tell you if you need a new cat.
The warranty should be at least >7 years or >60,000 miles.
There were some areas that recently got bad(contaminated) gas that could
kill the catalytic converter.
