Hi bruce,

you are almost there !

public class Example {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        System.out.println("We are going to create a GoKart");
        GoKart goKartColor = new GoKart ("red");
      System.out.printf ("The colour of the Go Kart is %s\n", goKartColor.getColor()); 
// call the method on the goKartColor
// using dot (.) operator, not e comma
// and don´t forget the round method brackets 
    }
}

Hope that helps

You want to call the getColor method on your goKart. You need something like goKartColor.getColor instead of passing in two values in your printf

Hi guys! yes thank you very much I did not call the method and passed two values instead.

Thanks again.
