You need to inspect your lock cylinder. Look at the hole where the key goes in inside the metal around the cylinder. Now if the key hole is off center of that metal cylinder- then you have the old cylinder. Make plans to change this out ASAP. You will have to get a new, key hole in the center, lock cylinder from Ford, and have it keyed to your key at a locksmith or the dealer. Costs range from $60 to 100.

If you don't do this, then one day your key won't come out, and won't turn. At this point, the lock cylinder must be drilled out to be removed, and you might have to get another key which can cost up to $100 alone. You will still have to purchase the lock cylinder, and now pay for labor to drill it out. Ask anyone on here who waited until theirs locked up before replacing it, and I'm sure they will tell you that it would've been a lot cheaper to swap the lock cylinder before this happened.
