I was told by the dealer that since my brake pads were on low wear that both the pads and the rotors needed to be replaced and this is what SAAB requests/requires. I have a feeling that I just got ripped off and that I only need to have the brake pads replaced.
Do you
have the same problem?
Yes

Anytime you replace pads, you should replace rotors. You dont want new pads on old rotors, you will eat up pads. And as far as rotors go, they wear down also. They also get hot cold hot cold hot cold many many times a day. This causes them to warp. Eventually u will feel your brake pedal pulsate. At this point, it can ruin your calipers. Dont skimp on money when it comes to brakes.
