Will not shift out of park without key in the shift lock release. Key would only come out of ignition by pushing shifter to the left when in park, but now the key is stuck and will not come out at all. Can not turn the car off completely, but can still drive it.

Sometimes the only way to get the key out is to take and push the shifter left into the PARK position. Even though it is all the way up, the shifter doesn't read it's in park, so will not let you take out the key until you push the shifter left.
This happened to me a day or so after I had pushed the car off the road. The owners manual said this could happen. Easily fixed by placing the key in the release located on the shifter.

I can't get the key out of the ignition. I took it to the dealership and they said that it has a faulty ignition but when I play with the gear shift I can usually get the key out of the column. Sometimes I have trouble turning it off or getting it to start. All fields related to turning the key in the ignition. It feels like something is not releasing letting the key move either to start up or to lock and release.
