You should get that into a shop to be looked at. Could be bad wheel bearings, or locked up brake calipers. You could jack the front end up and see if you can spin the wheels.

I did take it to a car dealership servuce center and they couldnt find anything on why its not accelerating,but they did find a bad ball joint.I dont know if that has anything to do with it not accelerating thiugh.

Is the check engine light on? Should have the vehicle scanned for any trouble codes. An auto parts store can do this. Write the codes down. This would help.
