My girlfriend has a 2005 Saturn Ion [auto] and shes had trouble with the key getting stuck in the ignition after she parks and turns the car off.
Sometimes you have to wait like 5 minutes for the thing to come out!

Ive read somewhere that maybe the car isnt registering in park?
How do I fix this?

it was a problem on early delta cars. this is a summary i found this on another site.

THE PROBLEM: I could not turn my key to lock position and remove the key. I had to pry off a small cover under the steering column and locate a plunger type button push in to turn key and remove. This was not an intermittent problem so had to get it fixed immediately.

THE FIX: They had to replace the shifter assembly as it was not aligning properly so the key could not turn to the lock position. This happened a month after my warrantly expired. I was fortunate though the dealership replaced the assembly on a "good will warranty".
