Are there forces acting on a car that is at rest xy?

There are forces acting on the car. They are just equal to the force of the car acting on the force. In example, gravity is acting on the car, but the car is pushing back equally. Therefore, the car doesn't move.

You are sitting in a car driving at a constant speed on a flat road What are all of the forces acting on you not the forces acting on the car?

Moving at a constant speed if your in the car then there are no forces acting on you from the car. If the car accelerates then the car will push you forward and you will feel the Force of the seat pushing you. The only other force on you in a car is gravity witch always pulls straight down. Gravity is always there whether the car is accelerating or not.
