It was a good deal for the money, although it needs oil changes, etc. or it gets "fussy". For a small person it's fine, but for a "larger person" it's cramped. The gear also sticks sometimes when in park, not allowing you to turn the key and remove it from the steering wheel.
The seat adjustments are nice, best I found for a car that price. Good fuel eff., although has decreased over time even with service.
Better exterior paint, chips real easy. CD player, work on engine noise & shaking in idle (even with continueous servious)
The issue with not being able to take the key out of the ignition, that is the problem with the lubrication of the ignition I think. Try some dry graphite grease in a tube. Stick it on your key and run in and out of the ignition and switch the ignition on and off a few times. Repeat another time.
Repeat once a year. That's what I do after it got stuck once or twice, no problems now.
