Another vote for black. My wife wanted the surf blue, I wanted the green, but black looks the best and we both agreed on it.

I already have experience with the colour from owning a black show car for 8 years. The work involved with keeping it shiny doesn't frighten me away.

Jeep Green looks great on some models of Jeep's, but in my opinion, it is not the best color for the Compass. Not a huge fan of the blue or white either...but beauty is in the eye of the beholder!

I disagree-my husband bought that color, and it's really eye catching!

I like the burnt orange, but ended up buying the Jeep green, because it had the features I was looking for (mainly 5 speed and moonroof).

I have steel blue and really like it, but I'll have to vote for silver.

For me it was either the Jeep green or black... I was considering red also at one point. But the only color they had on the lot with the options I wanted was black. I really like the color. When you look at it in the right light, it has this really nice metallic flake with some blues and purples... very subtle though. It even looks charcoal in some lighting. But it's not just a simple gloss black.

Lucky for me, the new Dodge Challenger also comes in that same black... brilliant black crystal pearl. That way my wife and I can have matching cars when I get my Challenger... hehe.

Wow... I know the two MK's you have are both Patriots, but if you had gotten the SBO, we would both have the same colors... I have a 2008 SBO Patriot and the wife has the 2008 Surf Blue Compass...

Both are exceptional colors....

That's funny! When we were looking for my husband's we considered getting a silver Compass (for me) then he would take over my green Patriot. In the end, we ended up getting a better deal (out of pocket) for the surf blue Pat, so that's what we went with. Best thing we ever did-dumped 2 junk trucks for the Pats-we both love them!
