Still dont know what is wrong with this code

public class GoKart {
  private String mColor;
  public static final int MAX_BARS = 8;
  private int mBarsCount;

  public GoKart(String color) {
    mColor = color;
    mBarsCount = 0;
  public void charge(); {
  mBarsCount = MAX_BARS;

  public String getColor() {
    return mColor;
