Scion tC engine tapping or knocking noise

Update: There is apparently a TSB by Toyota in Aug 2011 about a defective piston assembly which causes excessive oil consumption for 07-09 tC's and affected xB2 with the same 2AZ-FE engine as us. http://www.scionlife.com/forums/showpost.php?p=3952047&postcount=46 55k Miles on this 2008 Scion tC. Regular oil change intervals and never let the oil go low. Never had any issues before but on this last interval I noticed this unnerving tapping or knocking noise which seems to be coming from the upper end of the engine.

Toyota 3.5 engine tick tap
2008 Toyota Sienna The engine makes a nasty tick and the dealer refuses to fix it citing that Toyota has written a loophole into the technical service bulletin that you must have a check engine light for them to fix this problem. Well, i prefer to not have total failure on the side of the road before it gets fixed. I've had several dealerships look at the problem, acknowledge the issue and end up talking their way out of fixing it. Toyota HQ is pretty much useless and they just work with the dealerships to not fix the issue. I'll take the video down when Toyota fixes my engine tapping.

2011 Toyota 3.5L V6 engine tapping noise
The engine makes a tapping/ticking metal on metal noise at idle after it has reached operating temperature. I had first noticed this the night we had brought it home from the dealer while pulling into the garage. The car at this point only had approx 40 miles on it. I did not think this was normal so I took it back to the dealer and the mechanic said there was nothing wrong with it. I'm not a Toyota engine expert but when I hear a metal on metal sound coming from an engine it cannot be a good thing. Sounds to me like piston slap, bad lifter, or something is wrong with the VVTi camshaft assembly?
