please see what is wrong with my object literal

I get an "Car.display is not a function Car.display();" error.

Not sure why this is happening as I have included the method in the object.

Can someone please take a look?

thanks...

The display method is not where you're expecting it - try:

Car.owner.display()

@ Proculopsis - that worked however I don't understand since the display method is a property of Car not owner?

 owner : {
                        name:"Henry Lee",
                        cell_phone:"222-222-2222",
                        address: {street:"10 Main",
                                      city:"SF",
                                      state:"CA"
                              }

If you want it to be a method of Car then use the following instead:

var Car = {
    make: undefined,
    year: 2006,
    price: undefined,
    owner: {
        name: "Henry Lee",
        cell_phone: "222-222-2222",
        address: {
            street: "10 Main",
            city: "SF",
            state: "CA"
        },
        dealer: "SF Honda"
    },
    display: function() {
        details = "Make: " + Car.make + "\n";
        details += "Year:" + Car.year + "\n";
        alert(details);

    }
};

I think you by mistake added the method to the owner property rather than the Car itself.
You simply need to add another closing brace before that method to make it work as
Car.display()
