Help meee :)

Hi Treehouse, any help? :)

I am getting a syntax error on line 6. It tells me that it can't find the symbol by kart.kartColor().

Thanks for taking a look :)

public class Example {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        System.out.println("We are going to create a GoKart");
        GoKart kart = new GoKart("blue");
        System.out.printf("The color of the kart is %s\n", kart.kartColor());

You're really close here. The method is named getColor not kartColor. So it has no idea what you're referring to. Here's the corrected line you need:

 System.out.printf("The color of the kart is %s\n", kart.getColor());

Thanks a lot Jennifer, I understand now :)
