Undercoating or Rust Proofing; Is it needed?

So anyone have any opinions on undercoating vs rust proofing products such as Krown Rust Control? I am in Canada and "winter is coming" and just want to do some research to see if I really need rust protection. I didn't do any of that on my last Rogue that lasted 5 years and was not aware of any rust on the bottom of vehicle. Just some from the chrome area on the lift gate.

I did some research on the Krown product and not sure if I like the idea about them drilling holes and spraying chemicals inside the panels without voiding the warranty.

Anyone with experience please share. Thanks!

It should have been already done from the factory for underneath the vehicle.

True, however, additional coats of protective material don't hurt and generally help.

Yup, it doesn't hurt but an unnecessary rubber black coating underneath and it's a waste of money. From the factory coating, it is supposed to last for the life of the vehicle.
