Java Java Objects Meet Objects Add a Getter

I'm have a hard time understanding why the code won't run.

See code below.

class GoKart {
  private String color = "red";

  public getColor() {
    return color;

You are SO close. The public method needs to state what type of object will be returned by the method.

:point_right: add String before method name

Post back if you need more help. Good luck!!!

Thank you very much for the quick answer Chris.
