To be in the running all you have to do is tell us about your worst car buying experience you've ever had, in not-too-many words. Your story could be that you simply bought a car that exploded as soon as you got it back to your driveway, or, perhaps you bought a car from a friend or relative that didn't go down too well.

The winners will be those with the most unique, funny and outright worst car buying stories. They will be announced on Monday, August 16.
