help with the get method please!!

Print out using System.out.printf the color of the new object, using the getColor method?

What I am doing wrong in the code?! Should I create a get method using the Keyword return then print out!

Example.java
public class Example {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        System.out.println("We are going to create a GoKart");
      GoKart goKart = new GoKart("red");
      System.out.printf("the color of the new object %s", getColor);
    }
}

Try this:

public class Example {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        System.out.println("We are going to create a GoKart");
      GoKart goKart = new GoKart("red");
      System.out.printf("the color of the new object %s", goKart.getColor());
    }
}

Notice goKart.getColor() calls the method of the specific instance of goKart.
