“Dodgy” is a very commonly used word in Britain, especially in informal conversation.
The general meaning is “suspicious” or “unreliable”. The most common situations in which “dodgy” is used are:
e.g. I wouldn’t lend him any money, if I were you. He’s a bit of a dodgy character.
e.g. I bought this old car very cheaply last year but the engine’s a bit dodgy. It makes funny noises when I drive over 60 miles an hour. I don’t know what the matter with it is.
e.g. I got a call yesterday from a man offering me a million pounds if I gave him my bank account details. The whole thing sounded very dodgy to me.

I’m looking forward to some good quality sentences which use the word “dodgy”. But this time, I don’t want to see any dodgy efforts!
Great examples from Natalia and Sudeep! Thanks. I think this expression is easier to use than my other examples so far.
Sudeep, I recommend replacing "I may face rain" with "It might/may rain".
Thank you @Michale for another nice lesson:)
Today,I want to go home but the weather seems to be a bit dodgy,I may face rain on my way.
