Car pulling to one direction could be caused by one or a combination of many things:

1) tire pressure (are pressures even on both sides of the car?)

2) brake wear (does the pull happen only when braking? are the pads/rotors wearing at the same rate? if it doesn't just happen while braking, maybe on of the pads/caliper pistons are sticking)

3) worn suspension bushings and/or control arm ball joints

4) steering rack out of alignment (not likely, but could happen if you whacked a curb or pothole hard enough)

Good luck...
