With any car this is always a gray area. The answer is yes and no.

It affects your warranty if the part you add is proven to have a direct and adverse impact on a part. For instance you lower the car with aftermarket springs and something happens to your shocks ... gray area.

They definitely won't cover any suspension issues should any arise from aftermarket springs. Shocks/struts/control arms etc. What they cannot do is void any warranty not related to suspension. For instance, if your AC compressor breaks down.
