    General Motors Co. Chief Executive Mary Barra sought to shift the focus on Tuesday to the auto maker's coming new vehicles and away from investigations of a troubled ignition-switch recall, but struggled amid a barrage of questions about its responses to the probes. In New York ahead of an auto show, Ms. Barra deflected questions about a potential U.S. criminal probe, saying she wasn't aware if the Department of Justice has sought documents from the company, and declined to say when GM expected to answer all questions posed by auto-safety regulator National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. "We are working on those every day," she said of the NHTSA inquiry while surrounded by a media crowd peppering her with questions. GM Global Product Chief Mark Reuss was recruited to help provide crowd control after her speech.
