My car has 17000 miles.

Hello. We will be happy to assist you. The pulling feeling you experienced may or may not be normal, depending on how excessive the pulling is. It may be a good idea to have a technician test drive the vehicle so the pulling can be experienced by them. .Your pull(drag) may be a sign of a worn tire, bad alignment, or fault in your braking system. A fault In the braking system is likely responsible for a pull to the left or right or a type of feeling as if the vehicle’s weighted down. This fault could be a sticking caliper or an emergency brake being engaged when it should not be. An alignment or worn tire will only cause a vehicle to pull to the left or right, it will not cause any feeling as is the vehicle is being weighed down.
