Should I undercoat a 2010 Ford Escape in good condition?

My car has 80000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi, thanks for writing in. If you live in the north, then yes. You want to protect your car against rust as much as possible. Texas uses sand instead of salt for icy roads, but if you know your state uses salt, then please do this to maintain your car well and avoid costly repairs in the future. Hope this helps and best of luck!
