Brake fade..longer stopping distance and brake pedal pulsation. The pads wear faster too.

Initially, small grooves can form resulting in less surface contact with the pads meaning less stopping power and increased wear of any pad replacement. After awhile, the minimum safe thickness of the rotor could be reached resulting in failure. It's a waste of time getting the old rotors "turned". Buy new. The cost difference is minimal.

Your braking distances get worse and the rotors get ruined and have to be replaced, which is more expensive than just resurfacing them.

You won't get good brake pad contact to Brake rotor and will not stop like it was meant to. The surface of the rotor was meant to be smooth and even. So when you apply the brake the pad should have a smooth surface. If the serface is rough the brake pad will wear out faster and will not give you good stopping power. It will stop and can be used for an emergincy until you can get a good rotor. Good Luck
