Default Downpay by cash, should I get receipt?

Dear all,

I purchased a new car from a dealer downpaying $1000, which I paid in cash. Should I get a receipt or not?

Thanks for your answer.

You should get a receipt.

Why would you not?

What if they were to say you never paid the $1000? Then what do you do?

I didn't get the receipt I supposed to. They were very busy that day and seemed to be exausted.

Oops,
will they ask for another $1000 from me? And how could they, since all the paper work already stating that 'cash payment' of $1000, even though I don't have the damn receipt?

If you have a proof of transaction ANYTHING. You are fine. As long as you can prove that $1000 came out of your pocket to them, you're fine.

just like lavie said, always get a receipt even for cash payments so that you have a record of you handing over the cash.
