lol. Well now that the sarcastic response is out of the way..

The answer u are looking for is no. It would be the same as putting a sticker on your car... It's purely cosmetic and has no effect on your warranty.

Even that will not void your warranty, except for on the items you modified...if they can prove that was the cause of the failure.

Throwing a turbo on is not going to put warranty coverage of your stereo in jeopardy for instance.

Unless you sccratch the paint while trying to get the kia emblem off... I think any "modding" can potentially void a part of your warranty... right?? :/

my dealer said if I install the redline quick-lift hood supports that my warranty would be voided... I don't understand that one at all... oh well.

Dealers are full of shit anymore and as stated in other responses the only parts of the warranty that are voided are the parts you change..

For the Canadian Forte owners out there, speaking with a dealer rep, changing the bagging will void your warranty. There is no legislation in Canada that protects the consumer from warranty voids from the dealership as there is in the US, so be careful what you do to your vehicle during the warranty period as Canadian dealers can easily blame an exhaust leak on aftermarket strut bar. Unless you take it to court, kiss your warranty good bye.

Well I just checked with the dealer and he said, no it will not void any warranty if you change the emblems, so I guess us Canadians aren't totally screwed
