Stuck at step 3 method named charge

My code so far is:

public class GoKart { public static final int MAX_BARS = 8; private String mColor; private int mBarsCount;

public GoKart(String color) { mColor = color; mBarCount = 0; }

public void charge(){ mBarsCount = MAX_BARS; }

public String getColor() { return mColor; } }

It is returnning a compiler error and i don't know what it is. heeelp

GoKart.java
public class GoKart {
  public static final int MAX_BARS = 8;
  private String mColor;
  private int mBarsCount;

  public GoKart(String color) {
    mColor = color;
    mBarCount = 0;
  }

public void charge(){
   mBarsCount = MAX_BARS;
}


  public String getColor() {
    return mColor;
  } 
}

Hi Gabrielle - The error is in the constructor where you have mBarCount instead of mBarsCount. I suggest just removing that line since it wasn't in the provided code to begin with and also the challenge is not asking for mBarsCount to be set to zero.
