It says in the super line "Vehicle in class Vehicle cannot be applied to given types. required no arguments, found int, int, String, int, int. actual and formal arguements list differs in lenght"
Here's the code:

Works here... Do you have two different classes with the name "Vehicle"?

That is not possible. It is possible that there was a spelling mistake in the code which has been corrected in what was posted here however.

I thought about different packages. Many users "forget" to copy that line...

Well maybe we have not been given the real code, but on using the simple name of the class Vehicle, a Vehicle class in the current (unnamed) package will take precedence over such a class in a different package.

Sounds like a hiccup in your editor. They get a little bit confused every now and then. The compiler definitely should allow line breaks in constructor signatures.

Just a small heads up: manufacter is not English. The correct spelling is manufacturer.

Are you using a word processor? That might add a control character to that line causing errors.

… and welcome to the Ranch
