What am I missing I thought I was on the right path?

I just finished the lesson and from what I understood this seemed like the correct way to solve this. Did I forget something.

GoKart.java
class GoKart {
  private String color;

  public GoKart(String color){
    this.color = "red";
  }

  public String getColor() {
    return color;
  }

}

You should write

public GoKart(String color){
    this.color = color; // Instead of this.color = "red"
  }

This way you assign private field color to the value that was passed in the constructor
