WHY DO I HAVE TO PUT NEW BRAKE PADS ON IF I'M REPLACING THE ROTORS

2002 Ford Focus • 53,000 miles

Ive been told I have to replace the front brake rotors on my car. The bake pads are nearly new and I want to know why I have to throw away perfectly good brake pads

They have worn to rotor surface if reason to replace is vibration and squeal then new pads are a MUST

Yes, I would replace them, the old rotor may have caused the pads to wear unevenly or have grooves wore into the pads. Your decision.
