2008 Scion xD Question: Brief knocking during cold start

Hello Scion owners
2008 Scion XD
67,000 miles

Has anyone had this problem and had to replace the timing chain? Did the problem still exist after the chain replacement?
My Toyota dealer said it will cost $600 to replace and there's no guarantee that the problem will go away. They state that the timing chain skips for the brief second during starting, but won't effect the engine performance, nor would it do any damage.
The 5 year/60K mile warranty just expired and they declined doing a "Good Will" service.
Any info will help.
