Zombie cars that won't die: Some cars are always around; take it or leave. As reported by US News, these are the zombie cars that never die, but just get a new look and bounce back. When you start to predict the end of a car model, it comes back from the dead, so often- it's like it has nine lives. These almost finished car models stare death in the face and stubbornly carry on. If you're planning to buy one of these cars then you may want to wait for their new model. Most of these cars have attractive discounts on purchase, but that cannot mask the "Poor" value rating of some of these cars.
