J&M 1521 cart auger problems

Has anyone had problems with the auger u-joint setup on these carts? I currently have an 1150 that has a straight auger and its been trouble free. Looking at upgrading to a used 1521 but I see they have a u-joint in the auger hinge area because the auger runs at an angle. Dealer told me auger and drive was replaced last winter on this unit. Sounds like this was a problem J&M was aware of and covered the cost of the repair. I'm not sure if the parts were updated to a newer design to solve the problem. Want to hear of isssues others have had before I consider this unit. I see the newer 1522 carts have eliminated the u-joint and have a solid auger similar to my 1150.
