Yes that's fine. I don't want a debate. I am just making recommendations. There have been cases of people who have never serviced their cars and swear the car runs better than ever. Each to their own. I am just giving recommended reasons for doing certain things but everyone makes their own choices. There are reasons why some 10 year old cars are nails and others are like new. It's how they are treated at the end of the day.
It doesn't matter where it has come from as long as it's UK spec which the majority are. They are usually just brought in through the channel islands for tax purposes.
It's only personal imports which are not UK spec that you have to be careful about.
Some come from hire fleets it's true but that is not always a bad thing. It doesn't mean they have all been thrashed. My first Mondeo was ex hire but it was perfect. You could buy a one owner car that's been around the nurburgring!
The only car I would avoid is an ex driving tuition car but they are crafty because they often register them in private names and are difficult to detect.

In the old days the pads wore out and the discs lasted forever but now as certain materials in pads have been banned making them more abrasive it's both discs and pads that wear out. Also rear brakes are used less than the fronts so they can rust if not used hard enough so an emergency brake now and again is a good idea to clean surface rust off. In your case it seems the brakes were wrongly adjusted but unless you wrote to the garage within warranty by recorded delivery you have little to no evidence. I would recommend you put it down to experience and move on as I think you would be lucky to get anywhere with this one.
