    Car does everything normally but key won't come out. Trans is in park
    and steering wheel is not locked tight. Key turns engine on and off,
    turns to the proper position to remove...but cannot be pulled out. I
    hate this car!

    I had that problem on a '99 V70 T5.

    On the auto shifter gear stick, the large button which needs to be
    depressed to move the stick does not always return to it's fully out
    position (stays partially stuck in).

    If the button is partially stuck in when the shifter is in the park
    position the key will be held in the locking mechanism.

    If that is the cause, a temporary measure is to ease the button back
    to it's fully out position with your fingers. At my last service they
    sprayed some form of lubricant into the button and it now releases
    every time.

    If it's not the button it may be tied up with the vacuum switch on the
    foot brake which is involved in releasing the gear lever and cruise
    control.
