If you're finding oil on top of your alternator, then you have almost the same leak I once had. I took mine in for an oil change and asked the service manager to take a look at the valve cover gasket. Sure enough, my suspicion was correct as the valve cover gasket on the front bank of cylinders was leaking onto the alternator. They replaced the gaskets within 45 minutes and it has not leaked a drop since, this was around 10-12,000 miles ago.
The warranty also covered the repair. Press the issue and keep an eye on your oil level.
