I think the OP is perhaps referring to a clause that would void the warranty if a vehicle is used for commercial purposes. I have heard there are such exclusions in some extended warranties, but not the basic new car warranty. But there are a lot of different mfgs with warranties, so hard to make a blanket statement.

There is also the issue of how the car mfg would know you're using your car for Uber and whether Uber driving would be considered commercial service. I suspect in practice that you'd just need not to volunteer that the car is being used for Uber service and you'd have no issue getting coverage under a basic new car warranty.

If your vehicle is "registered" as Taxi use, i.e. TLC plate, it will void your warranty. Does NY Uber drivers have to register as TLC, I don't think they do.
