This is probably not an isolated problem, but a bad design, bad engineering and/or bad construction. There is an interlock between the ignition and the gear shift on automatics that needs adjusting at an exhorbitant cost. This should be a callback by the manufacturer.

Hi what is happening is that your turn off your car and left the wheels turned to one side and specially if your car is parke in a hill what you have to do is to force the steering wheel to the same direction of your wheels this will free up the ignition switch it is going to be hard let me tell you but it will work and this is why your shift don't work once you have the ignition switch free then your shift will work again

With the key in the ignition, tap on the key with something heavy like a pair of pliers, screwdriver etc. It will cause the pin inside the mechanism to drop, and the iginition will turn. Happened to me today, worked like a charm.

Very likely the steering thrust stored in the tires attempting to turn back is forcing excessive tension against the steering lock.
Try (very hard) to turn the steering wheel either direction while turning the key gently.
If that solves it you can avoid this by letting go of the steering after stopping to park, turn off the ignition slowly (engine off, pause, then key out). This will ensure that the steering wheel comes to rest prior to locking the column.
