2003 Honda Civic Hybrid Question: o2 sensor, heat sheild

Honda dealer says i need to replace my whole exhaust system because my heat shield and 02 sensor got ripped off. they said i need a new catalac converter too!! Do i need to replace the whole exhaust system it makes no noise? -
Answer 1
The dealership is likely saying you need the components since the original equipment stuff is kind of one unit. I'm not too worried about a heat shield, but I am worried about the oxygen sensor. This is before the catalytic converter, and is probably why it needs replaced. I would recommend you get another opinion - perhaps from an independent mechanic.
