Key Hard to Turn

my key seems hard to turn inorder to start the car.
the wheel is straight and sometimes you have to mess with it a few times in order for it to turn to accessory mode than to turn the car on.

i made a video to show you guys.
i still have 3k left of my warranty so im thinking i should bring it in to get it looked at.

the first 6 seconds i was using pretty much all my force as thats how hard it is to turn over. it seems after messing with it it finally wants to turn over

Common problem with the Cobalts, go to the dealership and tell them you want your key cylinder replaced.
