When the car is running, do you hear any strange noise from the engine?? Such as valve tapping sound or any noise that is not normal??? Usually if the car has some mileage on it, and still on first timing chain, the best bet is have the chain changed whenever possible. You wouldn't want the chain to slip or break when you are cruising at 60mph.....
$1200 might be a bit too much, go around to different dealers, sometimes, different dealer charges different price....
