"Sarah didn't use to trust ..." is poor English.

The correct form is "Sarah used not to trust ...".

This relates to:
Faire confiance (à) = To trust -

Yes your correct form is correct and circumvents the raging arguments between the other informal ways. But this grammar is changing especially in spoken language. News presenters now say different to, different than, etc. And the lines between less and fewer are use to getting more blurrier every day and I can't get useta that.
