The Lexus tech that posted in the second link said that 95% of the time, the cat is faulty, not the sensor. I wish it was as easy as just replacing the sensor.

Vehicle is in immaculate condition.

Records show timing belt and water pump was done at 90k. I can't speak to the spark plugs or if the trans, transfer and rear diff has been serviced.
