I agree, but unfortunately its only covered under the 3/36 warranty, and I was outside of that. And I did not purchase an extended warranty.
I suspect they think of the O2 sensors as maitenance parts, similar to spark plugs.

Yep. Cars can be money pits, but its not bad enough for me to want to get rid of the car. At least not yet.
I looked up independant prices on O2 sensors when awaiting completion of the car. At the time I didn't have a part number, etc, so I just searched under Baja Turbo, and many places were charging $200 or more for the O2 sensor part, so the $199 part price through the dealer service dept seems in line. The remaining cost was the diagnostic and labor/install charge.

Hopefully no more big expenses until I get to 100K miles...
