Kids and DVD Players, Part 2
October 25, 2006
Fortunately for Brian Moody's kids (see post below), I changed the batteries in both of the wireless headsets when I had the 2006 Kia Sedona EX this weekend. The batteries looked like the originals that came with the headset 13,000+ miles ago. That seems like a decent amount of battery life to me, not knowing how often those headsets were actually used.
As I discovered over the weekend, the DVD player does not just keep kids entertained in the back seat -- it works equally well on husbands, wives and sisters.
I encountered only minor annoyances with the entertainment system. First, someone had left a Hootie and the Blowfish CD in it but I can't blame Kia for that one. Second, there was no convenient place to keep the wireless headsets when they weren't in use. When I picked up the van, the headsets were sitting in the rear cupholders. When the cupholders were in use over the weekend, we jammed the headsets into the pockets on the backs of the first row seats, but it was not ideal and could possibly damage the headsets if used as the primary storage solution.
