What you suggest is happening can have several causes. Since you don't believe it is transmission related; I'd first focus on the easier fix which is the nylon bushings that are at either end of the fittings into which the linkage rod that connects the shift box to the tranny connects. These hard nylon doughnuts about the size of a nickel can wear out and break. What you describe could be caused by part of one of the bushings breaking off, but would likely also result in the car not always locking in Park either. The more likely problem is in the shift box in the console proper, and if you can slop the stick from D to N for example but it stays in gear, the odds increase that it is a bad shift box underneath the console. The fix for me was a junk yard shift box for $50.
