Modify the 'Car' constructor function so that it takes an argument for its model and set its 'model' to the model passed

Forgive me for asking on the forums, but I can't get this blasted question to be right.

'''function Car(model) { this.model = model; } '''

gives me Bummer! There was an error with your code: SyntaxError: Parse error could someone explain what it wants and how to get there?

This should be the pass for Challenge Task 1 of 3:

function Car(model) {
        this.model = model;

that worked thanks, why is it yours works, and mine errors?

Not too sure about that. Parse error means you could have forgotten a semi-colon, added an extra character somewhere, or something else. Check out http://jslint.com/ to help you find errors, since Chrome/Firefox dev tools won't be of any use on Treehouse.

Hello Andrew, could you give me the link to the challenge?
