Disc Brakes do have advantages but not enough advantages to void your warranty. From day to day driving, you don't "need" disc brakes but they are very nice to have especially in emergency braking situations. I came very close to slamming into a Prius that decided to make a very last minute turn in the rain, I can tell you if I had drum brakes that accident probably would've happened. But those disc brakes are extremely impressive and make the Focus stop on a dime.
