Ignition sticks, broke both keys (quoted over $700 for new ignition and keys)
Wouldn't shift, stuck in 3rd gear
Key stuck in ignition, can't turn car off
These are all related and is probably just an adjustment. It is important to realize though, that in case you are attempting to turn the key when the steering wheel turned quite sharp and maybe a bump against the tire putting extra pressure on the steering lock, that you do not try to force it if it feels stiff. The solution is (sometimes, depending on your car and case) is to simply take other hand and hold wheel to relieve pressure and then try to turn the key.
This is all wty so why not call VW? They also would have helped you when you couldn't turn car off...just call roadside assistance.

I would be interested to read a new review of your 2011 Jetta now since you have had it well over a year and a half. Has it been a good car still? Any issues?
