Yep, what arteegee said is what's happening. The seller doesn't have to sell unless the reserve is met. However, if you're not a good negotiator (I'm terrible at it), here's something you can do. Find a Ridgeline on eBay that has no reserve, one that's low priced and that you'd seriously buy. Find out what your flight costs and milage costs would be to get it back to where you live (inlcude any other feels the eBay seller may charge). Take the information with you to your local dealer and see if they can come close. If not you can always place the eBay bid. Anyway, it worked for me.
