Manual transmission violently pops out of gear when shifting to 3rd gear. Does not affect any other gear. Chrysler said to give it "sufficient follow through" when shifting into 3rd gear. Still an issue and is getting worse. Engine knocks/pings during acceleration. Dealership did not acknowledge the issue. Switched to 91 octane gas and the ping went away. Parking brake was not holding vehicle in place. Dealership tightened the parking brake and this resolved the issue. Chirping noise under the hood, same as a previous trip which was unresolved. Asked the dealership to replace the water pump and the issue was resolved.
