General Motors faced more pressure over its handling of a deadly defect in certain compact cars Tuesday as word leaked of a criminal investigation and two congressional committees opened probes into the matter.
The Justice Department is investigating whether GM broke any laws with its slow response to a problem with ignition switches in compact cars from model years 2003 to 2007, according to a person briefed on the matter.
Committees in the House and Senate also want to know why the government's road safety watchdog, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, didn't take action sooner.
The ignition can slip from the run position to accessory or off, due partly to heavy key chains dangling from the steering column.
An Associated Press review of a NHTSA database found that drivers started submitting complaints about the problem in early 2005, shortly after the first Chevrolet Cobalt went on sale.
The review of complaints about the Cobalt, GM's top-selling small car in the mid-2000s, found 173 instances of engine stalling or air bags failing to deploy, both symptoms of the ignition problem.

Idaho is considering a student loan repayment program to draw highly trained psychiatrists to a pair of rural state hospitals.
Giving job candidates the opportunity to slim down their student loan debt could help the hospitals recruit and retain bright staff, he said.
"Since I've been in my position, and for several years prior to that, we've never been fully staffed at our state hospitals," Edmunds said.
The area is a haven for hunters and fisherman, but those attractions aren't always enough to lure talented medical workers.
The two psychiatric hospitals are also eying their budgets to find money to put toward modest recruitment bonuses and salary increases.

Last June in Istanbul, Berkin Elvan, then 14, went out to buy bread for his family. He didn’t return. Elvan got caught between skirmishing police and anti-government protesters and was hit by a tear gas canister. He slipped into a coma and became a rallying point for those opposed to reigning Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who has ruled the country for over a decade but faces calls for his resignation amid corruption scandals and mounting public frustration with his heavy-handed governance.
