Default [Q] Void warranty and rooting

So I was wondering whether or not I should root my phone, and i remembered that rooting voids the warranty.

My last phone was an HTC one v, which i cracked. I called customer service and told them the phone had software problems and asked if i could get a new one (it was unlocked and rooted) and it worked. Granted, i did have insurance on it.

I'm curious if that would work if i cracked my moto g, would i be able to call them and request a new one if i had a "software problem" and i was rooted. Would it make a difference if i relocked the bootloader? Btw i have a us gsm one.

Has anyone ever tried "beating the system" and how did it go?

P.S. dont judge me okay, i'm sure some of you are wondering the same thing.

I know a guy who got his XT1032 replaced, cos the eMMC, died a week after he bought it. He had the bootloader unlocked and rooted (actually he was running CM11).
But that's in the UK, no idea really how the things are in the US.

Care much for receiving Thanks?Bitching at the others about it doesn't help, instead better stfu and gtfo.
