We have the exact same car at my job for a delivery vehicle and two months ago had the exact same problem. No recall. It's a worn ignition lock cylinder. Do NOT remove the lock cylinder yourself. This is a job needing to be done by a pro. The new key, if required, must be programmed to the vehicle because of the security system. HTH. -Jim
