    I would go Valeo. there are a few threads about LUK and Sachs giving problems.
    Lusted for a Landy but the Pajero was sexier and bigger in the right departments, just like my Missus.

    I have used all 3 but my favourite is Sachs because it has such a nice soft action, but not always easy to find a supplier with stock.

    And I thought it was only me that had problems with LUK.

    Got a LUK in my diesel and it gives a bit of a shudder.

    I had a LUK in my Hardboby for more than 130k km. Never had a problem.

    Same here. Replaced it twice already, last time also replaced the flywheel. Shudder persists. Also starts slipping when worked a bit hard.
