Luis Rodríguez Moya, better known as Luis Moya (born 23 September 1960 in A Coruña, Spain) is a now-retired rally co-driver, synonymous with driver Carlos Sainz. He is the third most successful co-driver in the history of the World Rally Championship (WRC), after Daniel Elena and Timo Rautiainen.
Only ever navigating at WRC level for his compatriot, 1990 and 1992 Drivers' Champion Sainz, he scored 24 world rally victories throughout his career for marques such as Subaru, Toyota and Ford, which lasted until he left the latter team at the end of the 2002 season. He was replaced at Sainz's new team, Citroën after retiring at the end of the 2002 season, for the full 2003 and 2004 seasons (as well as two rallies in the 2005 season) by another Spaniard, Marc Martí, former co-driver of 2001 Tour de Corse winner, Jesús Puras (and who went on to co-drive the 2005 Junior World Rally Champion and subsequent works driver for Citroën, Sainz protégé Daniel Sordo).
Moya also served as Subaru World Rally Team's Sporting Director from 2003 to 2006.
Later Moya joined Volkswagen's rally team and worked as an ambassador for VW when the team competed in WRC.
