If they're insistent then perhaps it's time to find another mechanic. I split the case on mine at nearly 110K miles and it was essentially perfect. If you have a well-maintained 54K mile, reasonably driven car that you've put only (shamefully, if you ask me) 1,700 miles on in beau-coup years I can see no good reason to even consider rebuilding the bottom end.

If you're really looking for a way to unnecessarily part company with ten grand there are better ways to waste it.
