first try and spray lube...wd40 in it and work it !!!

I'd never put WD40 in any ignition key way or lock. Please use graphite. A Teflon based lube is better than WD40, but graphite is the best way to lubricate any lock. The problem may be a simple as turning your wheels straight when you stop he car so the steering wheel lock is not putting pressure on the ignition release. Hard to avoid when parking on a hill. Good luck!

I've seen his happen in my Tacoma and also in different model/make vehicles. It's never been worth it to me to send to a mechanic, but if it's a real pain and lube and wheel position don't fix it, definitely take it to a shop.
