My 2018 Forester twice wouldn't start...key seemed frozen, wouldn't turn. I tried pumping the breaks, turning the wheel (which seemed pretty frozen in place). With a lot of jiggling, it finally started but a bit nerve wracking. Any one have this issue? Never had it in my old Forester.
Thanks

Is your steering wheel under tension? The wheel should turn thru an arc of a couple degrees and turning it away from the tension will usually free up the key. Are you parking it on other than flat ground with the wheels turned? Any car will trap the key if the steering lock is under tension.
