2006 Kia Sedona Long-Term Road Test

Kids and DVD Players

October 24, 2006

Guess what? Very small children don't like headphones. Luckily, our Kia Sedona EX has an Infinity sound system along with a rear seat DVD player that lets you listen through the speakers OR use headphones. Actually, I'm mistaken, our daughter loves the headphones - here she's trying to figure out which part will taste best.

So popular is the Sedona's rear seat DVD player that our son insisted on watching it while the van was parked in the driveway even though we have a perfectly good DVD player and television inside the house. But the system does have one major drawback - the DVD doesn't come back on automatically after shutting the motor off and there are no controls up front for the driver (mommy) to get the Baby Mozart party re-started quickly. You can just press play and the disc will pick up where it left off but my four year old son still hasn't mastered the remote. This is kind of a hassle for suburban errand running.
