My phone was jailbroken with alot of mods too it. I had plugged my phone into my OEM VW integration kit and the screen slowly went blank and wouldn't boot back up with much effort and was acting CRAZY.
I tried restoring it multiple times and it failed each time and I got a popup saying "service needed - cannot make calls" or something along those lines.
I knew if I brought it to the Apple store they'd blame the jailbreak.
I took an extra ipod cable I had and cut the usb end off. I then took an extension cord and cut an end off of that. I connected the two halves and plugged it into one of my home's outlets. It took several times before the phone would no longer turn on.
I took it to the Apple store and explained it "went dead" and got a new phone via exchange within 10 minutes....
This was like 2 months ago and I felt it was my only option since Apple would blame the jailbreak for a hardware failure.

I'd just like to say that valid points from all directions, but your analogy is not really justifiable.
"buy a car from a car dealership, you modify the engine to get few more hp and you wind up ruining the engine, manufacturer should not pay for that" ----> I agree.
BUT, that is not the same scenario.......apple does not just manufacture "cars", they manufacture "cars" that require that you feed them plutonium for gasoline, and only drive it within a 1/100th of the area of land that it is marketed for.
There's a saying, "You %&$* me, I %&$* you."
