Question: 2005 Scion TC- o2 sensor

Hi I just got my check engine light checked at Good Year Auto services. They said that I need to get my O2 sensor - upstream/Front change to pass the emission test.

The mechanic had mention that the reason why it cost so much for the part is that it has a air fuel mixture built in the part to regulate the air level?.

Can my car settle with a regular one from Auto Zone? or does it have to be the special one with the air mixture sensor w/ it?.

It lists at $212.16 and book time to replace it is 0.7 hours.

It does use a wideband o2 according to my manual, as do many newer engines.

You can get an aftermarket direct fit unit for around $150-$175
