Is your door level? If it isn't level, look there first.
If it is level, you can just use a regular weatherstrip u-channel, then you slide a backer rod (1inch foam cylinder down the channel and it will squish where needed.

You can go to Lowes or Home Depot to get the strip there.

But realistically, I would look to replace the door.

I have the same problem with the original uninsulated metal door that builder put in... 2006.

It's loud and it sucks. The bedroom above it is cold ... Guess that means the drywalled walls in the garage was also not insulated.

Builders. You gotta watch them or DIY afterwards.
