Let me give a word of advice on the Chrysler warranty. This applies to most 3rd party extended warranties, but I won't say all.
If you have to pay a deductible, say $100, then the deductible applies per visit, NOT per repair. So, whether you visit the dealership to have them repair one thing, or repair ten things, you'll only pay $100 --- $100 for the visit
, as opposed to $1000 ($100x10) for ten repairs. So, if something breaks, and it's not essential to drive the vehicle, you may want to wait until something else breaks. Or, if you take it in for one thing, make sure you get anything and everything else repaired that requires repair and that is covered under the warranty. That way you won't have to return to repair the other things and pay another $100 for the deductible.
Long story short, your deductible encompasses a visit and every repair you request during that one visit.
As for the original question, Added Care Plus is the better deal to me, and it's what I'll be getting. Specifically, Added Care Plus, $100 deductible, Lifetime coverage.
Here is Max Care:

Here is Added Care Plus:

The thing in those lists that I can see needing repair on being somewhat expensive are these under "Body":
Convertible Top Cylinders, Lines And Hinges
Convertible Top Frame, Bows And Rails
But, I'm not even sure if that covers the soft top itself. Anyway, I'd recommend Added Care Plus, but you'll need to ask yourself if you can repair those things not covered by Max Care and whether they're bound to need repair in the first place.
