Hi Austen,

You only needed to add the access modifier private.

You shouldn't change the name of the field. It was color and you changed it to mColor.

Also, the challenge didn't ask for a getter but it might still pass with it in there.

Where do u change it at couse i can not find out how

Hi Aiden,

Check the code posted in the question. It shows where the private modifier goes.

Thanks that helped

public class GoKart { private String mColor = "red";

public String mColor("red") { return mColor; } }

i need help ;0
