O2 Sensor

Though I didnt' write down the mileage the O2 sensor was last replaced, it 
was just over 3-years ago, and given how much I drive, I'd be suprised if 
I'm not over the mileage range.  This is also the first time I've gotten 
this code.

So, just bought a new sensor from SJM and will be replacing that at the same 
time I go in for the brake work.

Thanks for the input.
