I just got my car yesterday and I noticed that I can't have the key all the way in the ignition to get it to start. That seems like a serious issue to me.

1. we own a 2007 Pontiac G5 with 17,000 miles on it. The key stuck in the ignition and we couldn't get it out! we found out that there is a service bulletin for this problem (#09-02-35-005B) dated February 4, 2010. However, because this is not a recall and the vehicle is no longer under warranty (36 month/36,000 miles expired on August 11, 2010) we will be required to pay for this repair ourselves. Our local dealer (now the Chevrolet dealer in fayetteville, Arkansas) wants $45 just to look at it! 2. key stuck in the ignition. Only occurred once so far. 3. since others have had this problem we were able to read on line and figure out how to get the key out and, at least temporarily, repair it ourselves. We are sure it will happen again!
