What exactly are you wanted to know? My father in law works for Suzuk motors of America and had a new one every year since it debuted. He kept his 2012. 4cy 4x4 I will say this, after 100k it becomes disposable, problem after problem and parts are now hard to find. His rack and pinion started leaking 3 months ago and he still cant get the part. Considering he is the one that is in charge of the parts distribution warehouse, that says a lot.

Tell father in law, not to struggle finding parts.

3 different brands of Steering rack are available here:
https://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/suzuki,2012,grand+vitara,2.4l+l4,1502600,steering,rack+and+pinion,7388

Rockauto will save the day.

If he wants an OEM rack at 3 times the price, he can go to
https://suzukicarparts.com/parts/2012/Suzuki/Grand%20Vitara/Premium/index.cfm?action=partDetail§ion=STEERING&group=STEERING%20GEAR%20%26%20LINKAGE&subgroup=STEERING%20GEAR%20%26%20LINKAGE&component=Gear%20assy&partnumber=4858065J52&vehicleid=378514&siteid=214820

Parts availability is rarely an issue in todayís online age. You may have to source parts from a place other than where you normally would, but you can even find classic/antique car parts online with ease. Grand Vitara parts are widely available.
