Jiggle it in park, move the car back and forth in park. Details on what model fusion might help

Both vehicles were Fusion SEL , 4 cylinder, automatic. The dealer has witnessed the problem on both vehicles, but claims they have never seen the problem on any other fusion. They tried moving the shifter, moving the steering wheel. They have changed all kinds of parts but no solution. It eventually breaks free after much jiggling (seems like the warmth of the hand on the key passes into the ignition switch). Bizarre that it has happened on both vehicles. I thought maybe there was other Fusion owners with similar problem but have not found any others , yet.
