It's not a bug immediate necessity but I wouldn't wait a year.

I drove mine about 1500kms before getting it replaced and the only ill effect is gas mileage. It's not sucking gas like a big V8 but a little more than usual.
Just remember to do an ECU reset once you get the sensor changed. I had my front AND rear o2 sensors changed yesterday.
