Key Trouble Turning in Ignition

2008 Cobalt.

1. Periodically the key has trouble turning the iginition, its kinda stuck and then mysteriously fixes itself. I know there was other GM vehicles with a similar recall.... anyone know of a fix or recall for this?

What the best site to look at all the available recalls for my vehicle?

I recently had some trouble with this on my 08. There are TSB's on this issue, however no recalls according to my dealings with GM. Is your car auto or manual?

If you're up for a little reading, I have threads on my progress and solution to this problem. Chances are we can help you get this fixed without a large expense.

Have you tried a small squirt of WD40 in the cylinder?

rybalt,

If I can check into your vehicle's information to see if there are any open recalls on it, I'm happy to do so! Please send me a private message with the last 8 digits of your VIN.

Regards,
Sarah
