Are you turning the vehicle off with tension on the steering wheel? Let it be in a free state when turning off the vehicle. If not the problem you may need a new key lock cylinder.

If you park on an incline, however slight, the rolling forward or backward will place a strain on the lock. Try engaging the emergency brake before the key is turned off and shift lever placed in park.
