Of course, you will have no way of knowing that your roof is leaking until your area experiences heavy rains.
Moreover, on extremely hot days, a worn-out shingle will tend to absorb more heat. When this happens, your household will experience more humidity and you will be forced to use the AC more often than you normally would.
