You know what - you really are a:

NIGHTMARE!

My first brings in the light from the stars

NIGHT 'brings in the light from the stars'.

The other is preferred before the time of cars

Before cars, most long-distance travel occurred under horse power - a MARE is a female horse.

Before you even knew
I am born within you
I seek to unease but leave without a scar

Nightmares occur during your sleep, when you are unaware. They cause fear, discomfort and 'unease', but when you wake up they leave no physical 'scar'. (Unless you thrash around a lot in your sleep, of course. Like this one time, I smashed a glass on my bedside table, and... well, that's another story!)

My guess is

HEART

My first brings in the light from the stars

“Heart” begins with H for hydrogen or He for helium, and the nuclear fusion of hydrogen to helium makes stars glow.

The other is preferred before the time of cars

Art is something humanity has enjoyed since prehistory.

Before you even knew
I am born within you

Your heart is an organ inside your body, and you were born with it, before you had much knowledge of anything.

I seek to unease

The function of the heart is to move blood around the body, that is, to disturb it.

but leave without a scar

May be metaphorical, representing grief over a love interest (heartbreak), feeling much less enthusiastic about something (losing heart), or feeling apprehensive (having your heart in your mouth), each of which can hurt without there being any physical wound. More literally, heart attacks and other heart problems are common causes of death, but don’t cause the surface of the skin to tear.
