    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.

    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.

    This happened to me after getting stuck in snow and trying to pull car out. The key still gets stuck unless I really push hard down on the gear shifter and press real hard down on the brake.
    Not sure what this will cost to get fixed. Does anyone know?

    IT still does it to the day. but, every now and then it wont release my key form the ignition. I just will the gear shift (I have an automatic) and it clicks a bunch and releases it.

    Last week car started revving to almost 4000 RPM upon acceleration. This week, my key got stuck in the ignition. Had to push the shifter a little to the left and turn key at same time. Also believe having major electrical wiring problems as I have to jump start my car EVERY morning (&yes, I've replaced the battery)- Corrosion on terminals
