      }
    }

    class Car extends Vehicle {

      public Car(final double price) {
        super(price);
      }

      public void setPrice(final double price) {
        super.price = price;
      }
    }

    Correction:

    class Vehicle {

      // Change the access specifier to public, protected, or default.
      double price;

      public Vehicle(final double price) {
        this.price = price;
      }
    }

    class Car extends Vehicle {

      public Car(final double price) {
        super(price);
      }

      public void setPrice(final double price) {
        super.price = price;
      }
    }

    Or:

    class Vehicle {
      private double price;

      public Vehicle(final double price) {
        this.price = price;
      }

      public void setPrice(final double price) {
        this.price = price;
      }
    }

    class Car extends Vehicle {

      public Car(final double price) {
        super(price);
      }
    }
