Volvo Brakes

I have a Volvo 2001 V70XC. The car is new to me and I recently had the brakes relined. When I picked up the car, my mechanic (of several years) said that Volvo recommends that their discs not be turned. If they are scored or warped they must be replaced. Why is that? Are they too thin to turn safely? I have a slight vibration upon breaking at freeway speeds and would like to have them trued.

all rotors have a discard dimention cast into them rotor should be checked if thickness allows turning and or replacement thickness can be fine for turning but if severly warped than replacement is definitly recomended also some rotors are cheaper to buy new than to turn
