Lower Engine Tick - 2003 E500

Okay. I have an E500 with a supposed 'lower engine tick', that happens 'in the morning', I was told. I drove it out once pretty decently, and heard no such noise. The car felt tight and drove very well, and I hard NOTHING whatsoever. The car was very pleasant to drive, it seemed like a fine car. But the company of whom the car was in possession of before us (leasing company), of whom have many many cars in their possession and don't really see a car and get into contact with a single car too much considering they only have each car a couple weeks at a time (at which time they also have 60 other cars in their possession) told us they heard a tick, called a mechanic, and that said it had a lower engine 'tick' and needed a new motor. We talked to the mechanic's assumption was that it needed a new motor because it had 'a lower engine tick', but as I told you, we took the car out to test it out and it was fine. Is this something you guys have heard/seen before?


btw, its a 2003 w/ 60k miles (110km).
