My key would not come out of the ignition, it basically was stuck. The guy at the dealership is now telling me I have to buy a new ignition switch and key. I did not do this, my pontiac is always getting malfunctions fixed. From replacement of ignition switch, shift position, and power steering. It's basically a new car hasn't even hit 30,000 miles, but my warranty is out because its past the date. This is the most ridiculous thing ever, I will never buy from GMC again. 500$ for something that isn't even my fault.

My shift assembly just fell apart and locked into the park position. The key came out, and the assembly fell apart, no way to change into any gears at all! I just took the car to dealership for services today!

My ignition switch will not unlock. After fighting with every trick I've every learned regarding a locked ignition switch, my only recourse was to take it to the dealer with just enough gas left to coast into the repair garage.
