Over the last month or so, my key will not turn in the ignition when i'm trying to turn the car off. the ignition refuses to turn into the off positon, but i can move it forward all the way, where it makes that grinding noise, and then the key comes out and the car turns off.

I have towed several of these with same problem. Sounds like to me it needs to go back in for the ignition switch again. Unless it's not going into park. If it's not going into park it would be a shift linkage issue and needs to be adjusted. Chris J.C. Towing & Recovery
Try turning the steering wheel while trying to turn the ignition. Didn't work? Can you remove the key? Use some WD40 with the tube and spray a little in. Put the key in, pull it out, repeat several times. Put the key in and wiggle the ignition lock back and forth.(try while wiggling the steering wheel back and forth, too.) Still won't move? Try pulling the key out just a small fraction of an inch and try turning the ignition.
Still no solution, time to give up and call a locksmith.
