Warranty No, Mental Stability of Driver, Questionable.

Clearly the added drag will apply strain to the antenna base, likely lowering the passenger side of the car 1/2 inch... Eventually damaging the shocks by forcing them to travel beyond the factory allowed travel range... And subsequent failure would damage the control arms, springs, and panhard bar... Which would swing the axle out enough to catch the drivers side fender... The following catastrophic tire failure would cause the ABS system to fail, locking the front brakes... Potentially exceeding the brake fluid pressure limits... Leading to the master cylinder exploding... Shooting brake fluid (flammable in this case... Just go with it) over the exhaust manifold... Catching fire, causing the fuel line to melt and also catch fire... He resulting flame thrower under the hood causes the engine to explode... Throwing a rod through the firewall, and subsequently taking out your nav/ sync...

On a side note, the dealer will warranty the sync components regardless of the root cause.

Wow you forgot about the blinker fluid it is flammable able also. I wonder how much heat that would take before it exploded?
