It started a few months ago, when using my key to unlock the drivers side door, I would have to gently work the key back and forth until the latch popped. Tonight the lock failed, I am not able to unlock the door by using the key or by manually lifting up the lock mechanism. I am crawling through the passenger side door. The other door locks work by manual, the passenger side door opens with the key.

Usually you can feel the transmission shift smoothly in the overdrive mode when you speed up.You have to really get the speed and RPM up to get the transmission to shift into the proper mode.
