Hello. This is a very common problem on this vehicle. It is almost always a failing ignition switch. The switch fails and causes the key lock cylinder to hang up and not turn right. I usually remove the key lock cylinder and turn the ignition switch to see if it is binding. It usually will be. I have also had issues with the shifter interlock causing this.
