Why isn't the Subaru issue with key stuck in the

documented it's a factory defect?

It's common problem as I searched and the dealers know about it on the XV's. Some dealers replace the ignition lock, some a wire. But it seems it is related to the shift interlock switch, which can be replaced or disabled. Make sure the shifter is fully locked into park. But here is a quick fix without using any tools. While in park, on the shifter knob press the button four times. Then try to turn the key to remove. do this whenever the key is stuck.

Move the gear to Drive. Now move the gear to parking again. II still the problem. Move to steering wheel all the way I mean to the max. All the way to left and right while you try to remove the key.

Damned JDM production. Never a problem with Indiana Subies.
