Some of the others may come on for just a second while starting while the check engine light stays on a little longer. It should go out after the engine fires up. If there is a fault detected it comes on while driving and will stay on the next time the engine is started.
As stated, totally normal. When the lights come on with one press of the start button and the engine is started the systems are running a check and each light goes out when the check is finished. If the engine light comes on while driving a fault is detected, if it flashes shut it down and get it to the service center.

I don't deserve the car.

Today I stopped in front of the line of a roundabout. When it was ready for me to move on, I put it into first gear and stepped on the gas.

The car was not moving so I looked at the gear lever. I then realized the lever was only half engaged. The stick was vibrating crazy when my foot was on gas.

I am destroying the car.

If you don't smash this up yourself then I feel for the person who buys it after you!!
