key won't turn

Sometimes (rarely) when i place my key in the ignition it won't turn. i keep fiddling with it, and it eventually does turn (today i had to press hard enough that i was afraid i'd break the plastic bit on the key), but I don't want this to keep hapening.

My comprehensive warranty is going to run out in a few months, so I'd like the dealer to take care of it, but it is not something I can reproduce at will (it happens rarely as i said).

Any suggestions on what could be causing this or how to get the dealer to check it out/fix it?

Move the steering wheel left or right while turning the key. I'm guessing it's the steering/ignition lock.
