Since the clutch is a wear and tear part, it's not surprising that it would be bad at 65k miles. Typically they last up to 100k with average driving.
My best advice is not to go with an aftermarket clutch, the OEM will be just fine and the parts are made in Japan (OEM). If you go with a brand like Exedy, they sometimes use China parts to save margin. The Chinese steel just isn't high quality as USA or Japanese steel.
