just make sure your steering wheel isnt locked, cause if it is, you cant turn the key.

Solution: wiggle the steering wheel around a bit while trying to turn the key.

yes, i would suggest that. alot of people have had issues with parts pertaining to the ignition/tumbler and if i do recall, there is a TSB about it

you just have to wiggle the wheel and get it unlocked

That happens with my '08 almost every time I go to start it. I think I might actually be caused by wear on the tumblers. I find that if I wiggle the key a little after it happens it will turn normaly.
