Why doesn't this code pass the second challenge, everything should be working fine

I am really confused as to why this code is not passing, it even says that task 1 is not working anymore and I haven't changed that line in any way.

I would appreciate any help. Thank you.

public class GoKart {
  private String mColor;
  public static final int MAX_ENERGY_BARS = 8;
  private int mEnergyBarCount;

  public GoKart(String color) {
    mColor = color;
    mEnergyBarCount = 0;

  public String getColor() {
    return mColor;

I believe that your variable needs to be named "private int mBarsCount".
