Analog control can be a pain. However you can try using the vehicle to make it less painful. I have tried it after the patch and it still works. However I have played around a bit and I believe the following conditions are needed for the game to recognize zombie being killed by a hit from a vehicle as analog kills.

1) Play the game alone. - I found that when friends join your game or you in another person game, vehicle kills will not count into your analog.

2) Make sure the option for fighting is being changed to analog before you start the game

3) Make sure you are bare fist before you enter the vehicle - I realise that if I am holding to some weapons, the vehicle kills would not register as analog kills.

4) Throw a couple of punches before entering into the car (You don't need to hit anything) - Bascially it is probably to allow the game to register that you are in analog mode? Cause when i did it last night, it didn't register my vehicle kills as analog, so what I did was to come out of the car and throw a couple of punches and got back in. And then it works.

Hope the above helps? Once it start registering, you can just go driving around and knock off as many zombie as you need :D

All the best
