The problem may not necessarily mean it is a bad sensor. Check first the cabling to the O2 sensor before the catalytic converter.
The slow response may also be due to fuel delivery or air mixture. Inspect first the fuel filter if it needs replacing. You may also have the fuel pressure checked. Try also spraying some tuner spray into the intake to clean the MAF sensor and the intake. The bad fuel mixture may also be caused by dirt. Check also for loose vacuum hoses or leaks. Check for leaks in the intake from the air filter.
You may also need a tune up. Check when this one was done.
Try the suggestions above before replacing the actual sensor.
