Key Stuck in the Iginition

Was driving between buildings at work last night and when I go to my destination I couldn't turn the car off. The key was stuck. I drove it straight away to the dealer and when I got there I stalled it. My guess is the fix will be under warranty.

The same thing happened to my wife's 97 Saturn SL2 a few years after she bought it.

I wonder if it's the same GM supplier?

There is a release button under neath your steering wheel. Just pop off the little square tab. You will see it under the wheel and then you will have to feel around inside until you hit a small square like button. Press and hold the button and turn the key off and pull out.
