Getting the key out is a real chore. Pushing it in after turning the truck off is a real pain. Upside ... keeps my wife from driving my truck.

my key always sticks, and I have to really work with it to get it out, without setting the alarm off, which happens all the time.

Ignition switch would not turn at all when trying to start the vehicle. A very short burst of WD-40 into the keyhole freed the stuck mechanism and it has worked very smoothly ever since.
As above-sticks, breaks. Can be reinserted.
