Try turning your steering wheel while turning over the key. I found that sometimes my steering lock makes my key not want to turn so i just shake the steering wheel a little and it works. If im reading your question right

I've got the same problem on a 2009 jetta 5:(

if you wiggle your key and it unlocks that means you need a new igniton unit. its very comman in VW cars.
