One Sunday, I drove the vehicle to the grocery store, parked and couldn't get the keys out of the ignition and the vehicle would not go all the way into park. I took the car to the dealer and it was fixed but the key will still get stuck from time to time and I have to put the car in neutral and then slam it into park in order to get the key out of ignition.

Differential leak. This is a recurring problem. Oil leaks from the vent. It was repaired under warranty once and it has to be repaired again. The vent is a defective design and we now have not only our vehicle but many vehicles spewing differential oil all over. GM could easily provide a better design vent but unless the NHTSA makes them nothing will happen. The tsb for this item obviously does not work as many owners are having this problem over and over again. Recall these vehicles so we stop leaking oil into the environment and possible cause expensive damage to our vehicles.
