Check Engine Light Due to Failed O2 Sensor on Lexus RX300

The Check Engine Light may come on because a component of the oxygen sensor stops working. Replacement of the failed sensor should correct this concern.

The "Check Engine" light as well as the "Track Off" and "VSC" lights came on. The Lexus dealership told me the cause was a failed O2 sensor and recommended I replace both front sensors even though only one was faulty. Total $850.00

got this checked out because of the light, and they told me it was a bad sensor that has no effect on how the car runs, but was going to be several hundred dollars to replace, so I didn't get it fixed, but the only problem is that the constant check engine light could be masking another problem.

Intermittent check engine light coming on, going off. Mechanic tells me there is a failed oxygen sensor, and will be $417 to fix. I have authorized the repair. Car did not seem to be having problems whether the check engine light was on or off, but I wanted to get it fixed since the car has been stellar for these 15 years of ownership.
Car now in for 3rd time in 2 months. 1-replace gas cap seal,2-replaced gas cap seal and some kind of "accumulator" 3- calling right now to see what they have found in the last 4 days

We have 239,433 miles on this RX 300 2001. The only problem has been the O2 sensors crapping out. We've replaced about 8 of these over the years. Other than that its been a great car. Probably will not buy another car that requires so much effort to replace the spark plugs. Really stupid Lexus!

Mechanic has recommended and changed 2 different sensor as well as repairing the exhaust pipe. This has happened over a few different visits and the repairs have totaled close to $2000. The check engine light has illuminated again and they are recommending replacement of a third sensor for another $500. This has all,occurred within 2.5 yrs and 15000 miles.
