I find my cruze ride so low to the ground I use the wheel to help my self out of the car and 100% of the time lock the steering wheel doing so. Just need to joggle the wheel slightly left and right while turning the key forward to unlock. Every GM car I've owned locks the wheel like that.Did you try moving the steering wheel to get it free. Sometimes the wheel lock pin will cause the ignition to lock. I know I sometimes need to move my wheel with my Eco to get my key to turn.
Hello Gavinh,I have my car key locked in the ignition with the gear stick in Park. Key will not start the car but will also not be removed
