When the key is inserted into key hole in steering column, the key holder does not allow the key to rotate to start ignition. Several attempts are required to finally rotate the key to start the engine. The same problem occurs when I try to stop the engine. I took th vehicle to the dealer. I was told my vehicle is not among those being recalled.
