Java Java Objects (Retired) Meet Objects Creating New Objects

Java Objects

Can somebody please tell me what is wrong with my code. I am kind of still new to Java.

Example.java
public class Example {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
      System.out.println("We are going to create a GoKart");
      GoKart myKart = new GoKart("red");
      System.out.printf(getColor());
    }
}

You called the getColor() method without using an object. It should be myKart.getColor():

    public static void main(String[] args) {
      System.out.println("We are going to create a GoKart");
      GoKart myKart = new GoKart("red");
      System.out.printf(myKart.getColor());
    }
