I really enjoyed my masada. I had it for many years and I will still have.

The masada reliability is really good because I had a lot of cars that had major problems. I can trust in my masada to handle my driving distance for vacation. When I want to be like the fast and the furious I can drive super fast especially on the freeway. When I drive like a bat outta of hell the car torque is amazing.

Great cars for enthusiasts

Rotary engine so the needs are different than that of a regular piston engine. A great car, but only would recommend it to car enthusiasts who would care for its needs

- Cheryll A

It is expensive and it is a rotary.

I love it cause it is fast and small. I do not like it because it cost a lot to fill it up on gas. It's a great piece of art and very aggressive.
