My key keep getting stuck in the ignition. After a couple of tries of wiggling it out, it came out. But when I'd gone home for then end of the day my key wouldn't come out at all ! I had to leave my key partially started because the key wouldn't come out. So my bad dies, alarm not working and not to mention I was 4mths pregnant and I kept driving around as I spoke with a GM rep and onstar rep hoping eventually the key will come out but it didn't.

I have a 2008 Chevy Impala and my car just cuts off while im driving and the key gets locked in the ignition and the dealership said it was the aftermarket stereo so I took it out it has happened 4 times since I have spent close to $700 to fix this problem and no results what if my car would have went out on me on the freeway or something because it went out last night when I was driving in the middle of turned the whole car just locked the steering wheel and turned off.
