From reading other sites, there seems to be a weak design. There is a plastic assembly with a spring, the hook for the spring breaks and the car can't be shifted out of park. You will have to remove the interior covers for the gear shifter, this can be done by hand, they all just snap in place. To get you going, press the brakes and pull back on the hot pink plastic cube located on the left side of the shifter assembly as you pull the shifter into gear. This will allow you to at east drive the car to the shop if need be.
If you car is under warranty, take it to the shop.
My car was past the warranty, so I fixed it myself. Looking at the assembly, I saw where the spring used to be. I
bought a 75 cent, compression spring at the hardware store (Hillman
spring #106 4" X 5/16" X 0.35) which I cut to 3.5in long. I pulled the
cable assembly out that actuates the hot pink plastic tab, put the
spring over the cable (coil over setup like parking breaks are) and
re-installed. I verified it before I put all the covers back on. This
can be a field repair, the covers can be removed by hand, but a pair of
needle nose pliers are handy to re-install the cable.
