I would lean towards the Nissan. I've owned a few of the Impalas (2 police and one civvy) and honestly grew to hate them. I'm also not too impressed with Hyundais. Cheap imports that steal design motifs from other car brands. To be honest with you, all three prices you've posted seem high, but maybe that's just a regional difference between where we live.

I'd go with the Nissan....


In that list I would also go with the Nissan, but I would look for a Toyota or Honda also.


Find a Honda Accord. Leave all three of those alone.


Drop the Hyundai Genesis immediately. That leaves a Chevrolet with 31,000 miles and Nissan Maxima with 19,000 miles. That's not a tough decision. The mileage and brand favor the Nissan.
