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.
