Key stuck, had to pay a pretty good chunk of money to get it replaced - no easy fix, so they had to replace the shifter.
I have had both problems one behind the other. My key would not come out of the ignition for about 5 days. Then one day it just came out. After about two weeks (CURRENT PROBLEM) IT TAKES A REALLY REALLY LONG TIME TO SHIFT OUT OF PARK. iT'S SITTING IN THE DRIVEWAY AT HOME AND i AM CATCHING A RIDE TO WORK. RIGHT AFTER I SHORT TIME AFTER I BOUGHT IT I NOTICED THE EXTREMLY HARD TRANSMISSION SHIFTS.
