My key won't come out the ignition for a 2007 Chevrolet impala

My car has 105000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Try turning the steering wheel hard from the left to the right and wiggle the key around a little bit. If the key is still stuck, then you will need to remove the plastic molding around the steering column to access the ignition switch. You will find a locking tab that is securing the switch to the column. Note: Before removing the ignition switch, be sure to disconnect the battery cables. Then you can remove the ignition switch to manually remove the key. Then you will need to install a new ignition switch. If you need further assistance with your key being stuck, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
