The key tumblers may be dry, try a little lock lube spray in the key slot and then run the key back and froth a few times, if it doesn't work then your next step is a new tumbler assembly.

t~shoes is right on, as usual, but 2012 .......take it back to the dealer it's still under warranty

I don't recommend a wet lube of any kind in the lock cylinder. As DavidH25 stated, take it to the dealer - it's still under warranty.
