Back brakes sqealing going down the road.

I took my car to get it washed, and when i left i noticed my back brakes were sqealing when i was driving. Took the car back to my house and turned off the car and noticed underneath of the car it sounded like air was leaking out from somewhere.

Brake squeal..... water on brakes from car wash ?
Hissing noise.....Puncture ? you will soon know !
or possibly trapped water from car wash dripping on to the exhaust?

If the back brakes are drum brakes then it`s just water in the rear drum.
The hissing noise would be the hot brake drums boiling the water.

05 legacy sqealing sound when I'm stopped and turn

All symptoms of a loose or worn drive belt. As the belt wears, it develops slick spots that slip instead of grab. Since the main drive belt drives the power steering and alternator, this would be consistent with your issue.

What is causing my car is to squeal?

Check to see if your parking brake is sticking. That can cause sqealing.

Car pulling to one side

I would say that the left hand brake caliper is not releasing and either needs replacing or have a repair kit fitted.

Or the constant velocity joint on the left is seizing up due to either road dirt ingress or a cracked bearing

When you apply the brakes the piston inside the caliper is supposed to move out to apply pressure to the brake pads.
When you remove the braking effort it is supposed to relax allowing the pad to release
Yours is not doing that so it will cause the car to pull to one side.
