I bought a 2011 Kia Sorento 3yrs ago and had i take it back to the dealership 4 times because the check engine light would not go off. They finally got the light off but in the last 3yrs I've had an oil leak, a dead battery and now a alternator replacement. At no given time did the check engine light come on. My question is, is this normal or is there a possibility that my CHECK ENGINE LIGHT has been compromised?

What is your definition of compromised?
How many miles? Vehicle is 9 model years old, so battery is expected. What type of oil leak? Alternator sounds a bit premature but plausible. Vehicles are made by man, ergo, things fail over time. Mostly due to hard miles, which you have not noted. What did the service sheet say the cause of the check engine light was?
