Absolutely, positively not. The manufacture dips your entire car in a electrophoretic bath about 5 or 6 times to coat every nook and cranny. It is then baked in a dust free sun room. All the protection your car will need it gets when it is built. All you are doing by adding undercoating is adding about 50 pounds of tar-based gunk to the underside of your car. That gunk will trap dirt and moisture. Don't fall for the undercoating myth.
