Another factor is who is/isn't with you. If your family is in the car while you are outside the car and the carjacker is willing to let them exit the vehicle, I would continue to comply. If the carjacker is not willing to let me remove my family then compliance isn't something I can consider.

I have done the carjacking scenario and a number of other scenarios in force on force, scenario based training events. To echo some comments above, beating a drawn weapon is extremely difficult. I know some people that are unwilling to consider compliance regardless of the scenario. I've seen firsthand in that training how that can go.
Know the status of your weapon
Keep your muzzle oriented so that no one will be hurt if the firearm discharges
Keep your finger off the trigger until you have an adequate sight picture
Maintain situational awareness
