Over-reliant



[ri-lahy-uh nt] /rɪˈlaɪ ənt/

adjective
1.
having or showing dependence:
reliant on money from home.
2.
confident; trustful.
adj.

1856; see rely + -ant. Because it means “dependent (on)” it would seem an odd name for an automobile, but Chrysler (Plymouth) nonetheless chose it as one in 1981.
