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.

Key gets stuck in ignition at various times
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.

My key is stuck in the ignition. Can't shut the car completely off so I have to unplug the battery and just leave the key in the ignition

I had to pay near 1000 dollars just to get this problem fixed! Now I have just had my purse stolen with my only set of keys in it. I went to the dealership to get a replacement key and they told me they would make one but there is about a 90% chance that it wont work and lock me out of my car as a part of an "anti theft" mechanism. I guess there is a chip in the key that they cant replicate unless I get the car towed to the dealership and have the key programmed through my cars computer. This car is nice, but when something goes wrong you have to jump through so many freaking hoops to get the problems fixed its not even worth it!!!!
