You need to have the steering column rebuilt to cure this, a job for a professional to say the least.

Remove the ignition switch cylinder and inspect the contacts in the column. Look for dark spots, scratches, excessive scuffing. My guess is that cleaning the contacts with a little tiny piece of sandpaper and perhaps bending them out a little (so there is more pressure between the contacts when you reinstall the cyclinder) will cure the problem.

SOURCE: key gets stuck in ignition
My daughter drives a Suzuki, my solution to her is: while the gear shift lever is in park, lightly put pressure on the gear shift lever, through the park position and while pressing the gear shift towards park light rock left to right while trying to remove the key.
The interlock between the transmission and the ignition switch needs to be adjusted/ repaired or replaced.

SOURCE: Ignition switch or key problem
hi there this could be either as both can wear out. try spraying some maintenance spray down the side of the key and work it in by turning it a few times. it could just be dry and hence sticking.
hope this helps Regards JR
