the steering is so loose that it is dangerous to drive. The left front wheel bearing siezed up and had to be taken off from the knuckle and replaced. Steering was loose before but nothing like it is now. Right wheel bearing, shocks and struts on both sides also replaced along with front brakes and rotors. Any idea what may have caused this sudden problem?

My key is stuck in the ignition and has been for at least 2 years. The key does not turn all the way back toward me so it doesnt release. I have to plug and unplug the battery when I'm done driving or want to start driving. I've been told by a commercial repair company that it will cost $400.

gear change at approx. 33 mph without any check engine lights or any other indicators on the dash lit up. The car just doesn't change gears smoothly, it kind of has a thud at that point. It doesn't matter if it's cold or warm. It doesn't happen when the gear shifter is at 3 instead of in the D for drive slot . The tranny oil level is fine , no leaks or damaged pan. Thanks
The dealership suggested rebuilt turbos to save money, then told me the entire exhaust system may need to be replaced depending on any damage caused by leaking oil meaning another $3000. Then he said it probably wasn't worth repairing, I should consider a new vehicle. I can't afford the repairs or another vehicle. Please help.

problems with the evap system. Could the transmission work have caused this problem?
I just got rear brake pads installed on my car a few weeks ago. The first 48 hrs, I heard a very subtle rubbing sound while driving. I thought it was because they were new. I normally gauge my fuel economy and I'm literally at half of the miles that I should be based on having half a tank of gas left. Is it possible that the new brake pads are rubbing?? Or is it coincidence?
