Yes these cars have drums on the rear and they have automatic adjusters which may well have seized if not serviced recently. Pull the handbrake on fully and then pump the brake pedal. If it pumps up hard with little or no travel it means the adjusters have not taken up the slack and need work (or if you are lucky will force them to work). I don't think the front discs/callipers will be the problem but if someone has put new pads on a worn disc with a big lip it just might. As Dubs says an all round bleed with new fluid will always be a good thing especially if it's not been done for years.
I had an '05 plate LE+ which was a brilliant car. It's still on the road at 16yrs and 140,000 miles according to the DVLA.
