iOS Object-Oriented Swift 2.0 Class Inheritance Creating a Subclass

What part of this code am I wrong on. I feel like im close! What is it that I a am misunderstanding?

I think the issue is in my override init but I dont know how to fix it

class Vehicle {
    var numberOfDoors: Int
    var numberOfWheels: Int

    init(withDoors doors: Int, andWheels wheels: Int) {
        self.numberOfDoors = doors
        self.numberOfWheels = wheels

// Enter your code below
class Car : Vehicle {
  var numberOfSeats: Int = 4 
  override init(withDoors doors: Int, andWheels wheels: Int, seats: Int){
  seats = numberOfSeats
  super.init(withDoors: doors, andWheels: wheels)

  let someCar = Car(withDoors: Int, andWheels: Int, seats: 4)

You don't need to override the init method, the Car class has one property and the directions tell you to give it a default value of 4.

class Car: Vehicle {
    var numberOfSeats: Int = 4

let someCar = Car(withDoors: 4, andWheels: 4)

I've not learned a great deal of swift. But you seem to have numberOfSeats as you instance variable but then in you override init you are assiging seats (which is the variable passed into the function)= numberOfSeats. Should it not be numberOfSeats=seats.
