Not really. Informal "you" is "tú," with an accent. Informal "your" is "tu," without an accent.

Again, it depends on if you are being formal or informal. Informal is tu. "¿Donde está tu carro'" Formal is su. "¿Donde está su carro'"

Tu is used for "you" as in peers, or those younger than you. It's very informal. Usted shows respect... such as to a parent, teacher, or official. Usted is formal.
