Key May Not Start Car or Release From Ignition on Dodge Caravan

Problem Description and Possible Solution

Intermittently, the key may not start the car or release from the ignition. If it is excessively worn, replace the key. If the new key doesn't work, replacing the lock cylinder including tumblers should correct this concern.

Key will not turn in the ignition. Not sure what makes it finally release, but it is getting longer between episodes before the van will start.
key wouldn't fit in ignition - had to have ignition replaced. Still under warranty at the time, but had to pay for tow, etc.
