Java Java Objects Harnessing the Power of Objects Changing State

Java question (beginner)

I look at other explanations for this question but it these do not work for me. I am wondering if this is a clinch in the system or if there is a spacing problem.

class GoKart {
  public static final int MAX_BARS = 8;
  private String color;
  private int barsCount;

  public GoKart(String color) {
    this.color = color;

  private String getColor() {
    return color;
   public void charge(){
    barCount = MAX_BARS;

It's just a spelling error. The instructions said to "Create a new private field named barCount", but the code here adds a field name "barsCount" (with an "s").
