Ignition switch-I stop to the store one monrning and when returning to my vehicle to start, I couldn't turn the ignition switch. I had to have the car towed to the dealership and they had to replace my ignition cylinder because it locked up, which cost me $386.02. I had this car for only 3 years. Will it be every 3 years I have to spend close to $400 to replace the cylinder again?
